USC Institute for Global Health representatives traveled to Zambia alongside American Cancer Society and Zambian Cancer Society in 2012 to meet and interview local cancer survivors, health workers and activists during the 6th Stop Cervical Cancer in Africa Conference.
Pictured is Robert Banda, 29, who was living with stomach cancer in Matero Township in Lusaka, Zambia. He graciously shared with us his challenges confronting diagnosis, pain and stigma.
Sadly, just four months after recording his interview, Robert died. We hope his story will continue to live on to raise awareness and spark discussion among cancer survivors, caretaker, activists and policymakers in communities like his.
