BRIGHTLIGHT at the UICC World Cancer Congress, Paris

Published on November 1, 2016



BRIGHTLIGHT were honoured to be invited to join a symposium with internationally renowned researchers in TYA Cancer Care including Ashley Wilder-Smith (USA), Sumit Gupta (Canada) and Vicky White (Australia). This was chaired by our own Lorna Fern and Antoinette Anazodo (Australia).

We presented a global view of the TYA services available and gave an overview of how each country was evaluating the effectiveness of these services. This is exciting work that we are hoping to take forward to look at the global burden of cancer in young people so low and middle income countries can learn from the work we are doing but also what we can learn from them.
