Brazilian state-of-the cancer equipment project "back on track":

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The major equipping project involved in establishing a so-called high-complexity oncology centre (CACON) in the Brazilian capital, Brasilia, is due to resume this month, after construction was halted in 2005. Some of the state-of-the-art equipment - 17 items, worth R$2.65m (US$1.32m), including a R$1.5m LINAC - that is to be installed has been in on-site storage since then, according to a report by the Correio Braziliense daily, posted on the health ministry website. Despite uncontested reports of significant deterioration to the new building, health minister Jose Gomes Temporao is quoted as saying that the works would resume this month and that "radiotherapy equipment will be installed promptly".
