The research questions we explore are:
(1) What factors currently influence access to cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and disease management in Kenya and Tanzania, and what public strategies exist for widening access to cancer prevention and care?
(2) In those two countries, what health innovations could widen access to care, and what technological, regulatory, governmental, business and academic resources are available to support such innovations?
(3) In India, how can well-designed procurement widen access to care through use of relevant low-cost technologies?
Research will include primary research with patients, former patients, medical staff, and business and policy representatives. We use innovative mixed methods in learning about patients’ experiences, and in-depth interviews and focus group discussions with other groups. Our teams comprise of social scientists and medical researchers who work together closely to produce research instruments and to ensure we uphold our commitment to ethical research.
