WHO / EURO /Gilles Reboux

Cancer is not a death sentence anymore as we have new ways of preventing it, according to an expert on noncommunicable diseases from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Etienne Krug was in Australia last week attending the World Cancer Congress, an event bringing together representatives of government and organizations as well as medical experts.

WHO is highlighting that many of the world's new cases of cancer are occurring in less developed regions of the world, while 30 per cent of cancers could be prevented.

Speaking on the line from Melbourne, Dr Krug first explained to Stephanie Coutrix where progress has been made.
