ASH 2017 | Discussing treatment on a global scale: creating a worldwide understanding

Irene Ghobrial

The primary focus is often on treatment within the United States or Europe, but what about treatment on a global scale? Here, Irene Ghobrial, MD, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA, offers her thoughts on extending the understanding of how diseases are treated across the globe. Dr Ghobrial discusses an initiative that she will be involved in whilst in Egypt, with hopes to expand across Africa and the Middle East. She also considers the possible complications with the idea, but emphasizes that all patients, worldwide, need to benefit from treatment equally. This video was recorded at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 2017 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, GA.
