Decentralization of Cancer Care to Primary Care - a One stop Shop for Cancer Care
AbstractCancer poses a significant public health problem in developing countries, including Ethiopia. According to the World Health Organization, cancer ranked as the second leading cause of death in low- and middle-income countries, contributing to 2.5% of all deaths in 2015. A major challenge in combating cancer in developing countries is the lack of access to diagnosis and treatment. In many instances, these countries lack dedicated cancer treatment facilities, or if they do exist, they often lack the necessary resources to offer comprehensive care. This means that people with cancer often have to travel long distances to access care, coupled with the difficulty of affording the treatment they need.
