Dr Lynette Denny - University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa

Dr Denny speaks with ecancertv at IARC 2016 about access to cancer care in Africa.

Given the prevalence of infectious diseases associated with tumourigenesis, such as hepatitis, HIV and Helicobacter pylori, Dr Denny discusses preventative measures currently available, including the issues of cost and demand.

She discusses how linking HPV DNA in patient samples to cervical cancer using point-of-care analysis is changing cancer screening, and the need for greater investment in healthcare.
