World Child Cancer

For any parent, having a child diagnosed with cancer is one of the worst things imaginable. Sadly for many parents in low and middle income countries the diagnosis is made worse as survival rates are far lower than they should be, as low as 10%. Whilst in high income countries, survival rates for child cancers are around 80%.


Quite simply, children are dying because of the knowledge gap between rich and poor countries. Worse still, many are dying without any effective pain relief.
Our vision is to see a world where every child with cancer has access to the best possible treatment and care.


We work to improve cancer diagnosis, treatment and care for some of the world’s poorest children by creating twinning partnerships linking hospitals in developed and developing countries. These partnerships create a two-way transfer of expertise and skills to develop locally appropriate and affordable solutions to the problem of child cancer.
