AORTIC Presentation | AORTIC Newsletter 2nd

AORTIC Africa, formed by expatriate African cancer care workers, scientists and their friends, is dedicated to the promotion of cancer control in Africa. AORTIC's key objectives are to further research relating to cancers prevalent in Africa; support the management of training programs in oncology for health care workers, and to deal with the challenges of creating cancer control and prevention programs, as well as raising public awareness of cancer in Africa. The Executive members of AORTIC are high-profile scientists from all over Africa volunteering as knowledge workers for the plight of the cancer patient in Africa. Their main value is their ability to gather and analyse information and make decisions that will benefit the cancer patient. They work collaboratively with other cancer organizations via conferences and the internet, sharing knowledge, learning from each other and disseminating relevant ideas and research to the cancer community.
