Dr Christopher Wild - Director of IARC, Lyon, France

Dr Wild talks to ecancertv's Prof Gordon McVie at IARC 2016 about the importance of IARC's 50th anniversary and the conference. He explains how IARC offers a hub for people within health to network and work together.

In particular, he speaks of the need to leave a legacy behind after the event, in the form of action in the developing world.

Of particular importance is prevention, he says. For example, a third of cancers in Sub-Saharan Africa are caused by preventable infections.
