Working to improve the standard of cancer care in Eldoret, Kenya

Dr Patrick Loehrer discusses the difficulties faced improving the standard of cancer care across Africa.

Dr Loehrer explains how the work Indiana University carried out in collaboration with Moi University and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kenya has been extended from concentrating solely on HIV/AIDS to promoting oncology education, services and research and sharing professional expertise in order to increase cancer prevention, treatment and palliative care.
