Treatment For All: Addressing the Cancer Equity Gap

We can and must do more to prevent unnecessary deaths through better prevention, detection and treatment methods. Julie Torode, Deputy CEO and Director of Advocacy and Networks, Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), is here to share more on the Treatment For All initiative.
