World Child Cancer
Who we are
World Child Cancer is dedicated to redressing the global inequality in treatment of children with cancer. We improve cancer diagnosis and treatment for some of the World’s poorest children by creating international twinning partnerships between medics and parents in resource rich and resource poor countries.
In developed countries children have a 80% chance of surviving cancer. But the story is very different in low and middle income countries which account for 80% of the global incidence of childhood cancer. In these countries, many children are left undiagnosed and of those that do receive treatment less than 10% survive. Worse, most die without any pain relief.
For relatively small amounts of money we can put in place simple procedures that will help increase chances of survival and access to care.
