Geography determines whether or not you receive treatment for cancer, and whether you will suffer painfully or live with a good quality of life. This is a fact of the cancer divide, placing the disproportionate burden of cancer deaths and disabilities on the developing world. How do we dismantle the barriers to cancer care in low- and middle-income countries, and ensure that cancer isn’t a death sentence because of where you live or how poor you are? We speak to Dato’ Dr Saunthari Somasundaram, President of the National Cancer Society of Malaysia, and HE Dr Wahid Ali Said Al Kharusi, President & Chairperson, Oman Cancer Association, in conjunction with the National Cancer Congress Malaysia 2024.
