IN SUMMARY

  • In July, the Aga Khan University Hospital, for instance, entered into a deal with the Uganda Cancer Institute to provide over 400 cancer patients from Uganda with free radiotherapy treatment.

An additional 600 cancer specialists from Kenya will undergo training in the next four years in a move aimed at improving local capacity to diagnose and treat the disease.

The East African Development Bank (EADB) and the British Council announced on Friday that they have partnered with the UK’s Royal College of Physicians to roll out the medical training and fellowships programme.
