Late Cancer Diagnosis

The fellows at AkiPress and Kaktus Media published a data story about late cancer diagnoses, attempting to discover the root of the issue. Taking one woman as an example, the data fellows revealed the problem of insufficient cancer prevention and a shortage of oncologists. The necessary treatment is available mainly in Bishkek and Osh; as a consequence, there has been a large increase in cancer deaths, especially in the other regions of Kyrgyzstan.

The story was viewed 4,106 times on the Kaktus Media and 11,133 times on AkiPress websites and received 43 likes, 9 comments, and 52 shares on Facebook.
