Expanding Access to Esophageal Stents in Africa
About the African Esophageal Cancer Consortium
African Esophageal Cancer Consortium (AfrECC) facilitates collaborations to coordinate etiologic and molecular studies of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) in East Africa. The consortium addresses the need for more research in this high-risk region. AfrECC seeks to build clinical capacity in the region to improve outcomes for early detection, treatment, and palliation of esophageal cancer. AfrECC also raises awareness of ESCC through education and advocacy.
