Cancer treatment centre coming soon in Cameroon

Plans are underway to create a cancer treatment centre in Cameroon.
It was disclosed on Thursday in Yaoundé when the director of civil cabinet at the presidency held talks with an Italian professor.
Professor Vittorio Colizzi , a renowned research fellow in Europe, revealed during a press conference after the meeting that some Cameroonian and Italian universities are already collaborating in research.
The plans had been nursed several years ago and were revived when President Paul Biya visited Italy months back.
Cancer is fast becoming a real headache for the entire world.

The body in charge of cancer in Cameroon says about 14000 new cases were diagnosed in 2016 in the country.
About 15000 people are believed to contract cancer in Cameroon every year.
This comes just hours after the former  candidate for the US presidential election was diagnosed with brain Cancer. John McCain, who is reportedly considering treatment options, was beaten by former President Barack Obama in 2008.
Cameroon is good at misplacing priorities. Currently, she is celebrating the rehabilitation of the Yaoundé Conference Centre, where a huge sum of money has disappeared.
And unfortunately, the idea of this cancer treatment centre may remain in the air for the next couple of years.
