"The Lalla Salma Foundation for cancer prevention and treatment will accompany Burkina Faso as part of a pilot project that allows us to set up a system for the detection and treatment of cervical cancer and breast cancer", said the Secretary-General of the Ministry of health of Burkina Faso, Robert Kargougou. He said this in an interview with the Moroccan news agency MAP after a meeting in Ouagadougou with a team of Moroccan specialists.
The pilot was developed in collaboration with the International Agency for research on cancer, an agency of the World Health Organisation (WHO).
