PRI's The World

Joanne Silberner, a Seattle journalist, friend and colleague who formerly produced many prize-winning reports on health for NPR, traveled across the planet to document the fight against cancer in poor countries with few resources.

Silberner’s extensive radio series, to be aired beginning this week on PRI and also published online as written text and podcasts, begins in Uganda where a number of Seattle efforts — like this project focused on breast cancer — have been underway for years aimed at boosting the ability of poor nations to fight this killer and to also get cancer higher on the global health agenda.
