This project aims to identify the scope for innovative industrial-health collaboration to tackle the emerging crisis of exclusion from cancer care in Africa. Our research will establish baseline evidence on emerging technological opportunities, high priority local needs, and local industrial and health sector capabilities in Kenya and Tanzania.
We will also explore opportunities and challenges emerging from experiences in India and the United Kingdom. This collaborative research will bring together stakeholders from industrial, policy, and health sectors, exploring how to harness industrial and health capabilities to drive more inclusive growth. The main outcomes of this project will be practical scenarios, which link innovation in industry and health sectors to generate more accessible cancer care in East Africa.
Patients' experiences of cancer, and health professionals' knowledge and experience.
Local firms' capabilities to move into cancer-related pharmaceuticals, medical devices and ICT.
How to link innovation in local industrial and health sectors to strengthen cancer care.
New low-cost technologies for cancer care are coming through. Evidence from India and the UK.
New methods and new knowledge through collaboration across boundaries.
Collaborative generation, evidencing and costing of specific scenarios for better cancer care.
