Rajya Sabha discusses need for affordable treatment of cancer

The Rajya Sabha has taken up a short duration discussion on the need to ensure basic facilities and affordable treatment to cancer patients. Initiating the discussion, Vishambhar Prasad Nishad of Samajwadi Party drew the attention of the House towards inadequate health facility for the treatment of the disease in the country.
