The prevention of cancer in South Africa
Keywords: cancer, prevention, South Africa
AbstractThe war on cancer started in earnest in 1971 when Richard Nixon empowered the National Cancer Institute to eradicate cancer. Forty years later, after spending close on a trillion dollars and involving approximately 100 000 cancer researchers, roughly 50% of the cancer problem remains to be solved. Achieving this could take another 40 years.
