We established a long-standing and highly successful treatment programme in Uganda, for the childhood cancer, retinoblastoma. It has become a model for the management of certain childhood cancers in low income settings.
This programme is being adopted by other centres on the continent.
We recently published a 10-year follow up of the largest clinical cohort of childhood cancer in Africa. It highlighted sustained improvements in survival, showing that we are delivering work of clear clinical and policy impact for the region.
