Good morning, this is Kasmira. We're covering the World Cancer Congress in Geneva, where health leaders warned this week of avoidable cancer deaths in poorer countries. Meanwhile, in Berlin, the World Health Summit wrapped up this week with a look at how the war in Ukraine is fuelling antimicrobial resistance. And the UN's new technology envoy gives one of his last interviews in Geneva before packing up and moving to New York.
