Improving Cancer Prevention and Access to Care in Belize and the Caribbean Region: A Discussion with Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow, First Lady of Belize; Chair Spouses of CARICOM, Leaders Action Network (SCLAN) 

Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow, the First Lady of Belize, has been a vocal champion for health equity in her native country of Belize. Among her many philanthropic
endeavors, she is the founder and chair of the Spouses of CARICOM Leaders Action Network (SCLAN), which addresses a range of health issues across the Caribbean including HPV and cervical cancer. She’s also been a strong advocate for establishing Belize’s first publicly accessible, comprehensive cancer care unit at the country’s national hospital.

Opening remarks will be provided by Franklin Huang, MD, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine at UCSF and co-founder of Global Oncology (GO), a non-profit organization that aims to expand access to cancer care in low- and middle-income countries.
