Update on radiotherapy provision in Uganda

A new radiotherapy machine was commissioned in January 2018 and in March delivery of a second Cobalt 60 machine, to be installed at the Uganda Cancer Institute, was also announced, with a further five machines planned within a few years. This will really dramatically improve the provision of treatment and the chances for a successful outcome for many many patients.

Sadly not everyone can manage to get treatment and Toko Friday, volunteer at Makerere Palliative Care Unit has written very movingly about one such patient that the volunteers provided support to recently.
