There is a tremendous need for cancer care in the country of Tanzania. There is currently one pediatric oncologist in all of Tanzania based in Dar es Salaam. Over the past three years, the Duke Global Cancer Program has established a partnership with the Bugando Cancer Center to improve pediatric cancer care. We have a Duke trained pediatric hematologist oncologist (Dr. Kristin Schroeder) who is on site in Tanzania, working to improve cancer care delivery. At the same time we are establishing an infrastructure for clinical trials as well as biobanking.
