Abstract

In their Correspondence (Feb 25, p 712),1 Drucilla Roberts and colleagues highlight a substantial barrier to expanding access to cancer care and control in resource-constrained settings: the absence of adequate pathology. This gap can render largely useless otherwise successful efforts to expand access. Indeed, improving cancer diagnosis and pathology expertise is recommended in the report of the Global Task Force on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control,2 discussed in an Editorial.

Keywords: cancer, cancer care, pathology, cancer pathology
