GTFRCC Workshop at CARO
September 17, 2016 @ 9:45 am - 11:15 am
The session will introduce the problem of limited global availability of radiotherapy, review the main methodologies and findings of the Global Task Force on Radiotherapy for Cancer Control (GTFRCC), and consider the implications of its findings for improved global access to radiotherapy.
The interactive nature of the workshop will provide opportunity for creative dialogue about strategies to achieve the goals outlined in the GTFRCC report (Lancet Oncology 2015). It will also consider approaches to create a radiotherapy partnership that includes professional and civil society organizations, international and technical groups, and public and private funding sources in order to, drive activities at the state-level to close the gap in access to radiotherapy.
