Roundtable held on regional cancer centres

A roundtable discussion was organised by the Centre for Cancer Prevention and Research (CCPR) and Rotary Club of Dhaka on the importance of establishing a regional cancer centre in the National Press Club recently, says a press release.

Associate Professor Dr Md Habibullah Talukdar, Head of the Department, Cancer Epidemiology at the National Institute of Cancer Research and Hospital (NICR&H) presented a concept note on how establishing regional cancer centres across the country can contribute on the prevention and treatment of cancer throughout the country.

Eminent cancer researchers, cancer survivors, social workers and journalists were also present and actively took part in the roundtable discussion. Dr Talukdar shed light on how a huge portion of cancer patients are deprived of appropriate treatment for cancer and urged the government to establish regional cancer centres that will help the people of the country by providing affordable advanced cancer treatment and prevention modalities.
