Dr Christopher Wild - Director, International Agency for Research on Cancer, Lyon, France

Dr Wild talks to ecancertv at the War on Cancer Meeting about the options we have to reduce the global financial burden caused by cancer, with a focus on prevention and early detection.

He argues that if less people got cancer in the first place, health services could afford to treat patients with the most up-to-date (thus expensive) treatments.

He also notes the importance of countries establishing cancer registries to enable an accurate understanding of the situation which will inform the necessary intervention.
