Dr Christopher Williams - Centre for AIDS Research, Seattle, USA

Dr Christopher Williams speaks to ecancer at the 2019 AORTIC conference in Maputo about the association between cancer and retroviral diseases in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

He describes his experience in observing the first case of adult T-cell leukaemia/lymphoma (ATLL) - which subsequently has been showed to be associated with the human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1).

Dr Williams provides an overview of the type of cancers associated with HIV infections/AIDS and the challenges of controlling these diseases in LMICs.
