Bridging the Gap: Transforming Knowledge into Action
July 8-12, 2006, Washington, DC, USA
Methods:An assessment of the activities and challenges of the Nigerian cancer society during these years is carried out based on on-hand experience as national officials and volunteers of the society for 18years.
Results:Lack of finance has been the major factor retarding the growth of the society, thereby preventing it from carrying out most of the great ideas and objectives set out by it. Futhermore it has also impeded the injection of professionalism in its administration and the development of modern management methods. Overcoming the existing hurdles will make room for a moe efficient and purpose-driven Cancer society.
