While the inequalities in some cancers are clear to see, it is not so easy to single out universal causes or to identify the effective levers which will improve the situation. So that’s why our chosen starting point – in every country we work in - is to create a national conversation, designed to get the issue on the map and talked about among clinicians, policy makers and community leaders.

​​

The next stage of the model will be to use the findings from that conversation to shape education activity aimed at these disenfranchised communities.
