The human rights agenda and cancer research

Hesitant steps on achieving equity in research spend on cancers

Is there a place for a ‘human rights’ approach, to increase cancer research spend in rare cancers?

There are several assumptions in that header. The least problematic being is there a need to increase cancer research in rare cancers?  As people are dying that’s certainly a ‘yes’ in all cancers and particularly in the subset of ‘rare’.

My wobbly human rights slant pops up at the end, rather than being the centre of the story.
