As such it should be of interest to the clinical, scientific and academic community, policy makers, government and non-government stakeholders and industry.The Journal supports the vision of SASGO, namely to promote excellence in gynaecologic cancer care and will also aim to promote excellence in breast cancer care. The Journal also supports the mission of the society and will assist SASGO with all aspects of communication, training, advocacy and by supporting and stimulating local research.
