Cancer is a critical public health problem in Africa. About 650,000 people in Africa develop cancer annually, and about 510,000 cancer deaths occur annually due to limited treatment. More than one-third of the cancer deaths in Africa are from cancers that are easily preventable and/or treatable, if detected early. But Sub-Saharan countries simply lack the personnel, training resources and infrastructure needed to respond to the growing cancer challenge.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, there is less than one pathologist per one million people. Swaziland has one pathologist serving the entire countrys population of two million. In contrast, the United States has more than 60 pathologists per one million people. Without diagnostics, clinicians in Sub-Saharan Africa are unable to effectively screen for cancer, diagnose disease and develop care plans. This results in the majority of cancers not being diagnosed until they reach an advanced stage of disease.

The company’s Power and Water segment offers gas, steam and aeroderivative turbines, nuclear reactors, generators, combined cycle systems, controls, and related services; wind turbines; and water treatment services and equipment.
