  • Organised by Oncology

This year's annual event will explore the financial and ethical impact of cancer globally. Join this collaborative effort to bring global equality in access to cancer care with cost effective, safe and innovative strategies.

This webinar will focus on impacts, including the cost of not treating people with cancer, the cost of over-investigation and treatment, the role and controversies around AI radiotherapy planning in a low-income setting, and health care funding in a low-income setting.

We will bring together healthcare professionals interested in global oncology to learn, discuss and share experiences.

Participants will be able to:

  • Discuss how to address the global disparities in cancer care through collaborative networks
  • Present the financial cost of implementing cancer control in low-middle income settings
  • Discuss the global economic impact of not implementing comprehensive cancer care that is free at the point of access, including loss of economically productive work force and development of unregulated private provisions. A solution to this will be offered through the Choosing Wisely strategy
  • Discuss how cost-effective radiotherapy innovation can drive better and cheaper care
  • Present the WHO essential cancer medicines list

This webinar is part of the London Global Cancer Week 2021 aiming to highlight the important contribution the UK makes to the fight against cancer in poorer resourced emerging nations.
