Morocco will launch within months the first Moroccan test for molecular diagnosis of breast cancer.

The Moroccan diagnostic test will reduce costs and wait times for patients in the country and across Africa.

The member of the Executive Board of the Moroccan Foundation for Advanced Science, Innovation and Research, Hassan Sefrioui, revealed during a health conference held in Rwanda that the development of cancer treatment groups has been underway since 2010.

Sefrioui added that leukemia tests have been used in Morocco on 400 people and that with locally manufactured test kits, results can be obtained within hours.

Diagnostic kits for cancer and other diseases in Africa are expensive imports from outside the continent, usually from Europe and the United States.
