On February 15th, International Childhood Cancer Day, CCI and SIOP are joining forces to launch a global three-year campaign. This initiative aims to address the
unique challenges and inequalities faced by children and adolescents with cancer, as well as their families.
Throughout this month-long campaign, our objective is not only to raise awareness but also to identify challenges and inequities in childhood cancer treatment. CCI and SIOP emphasise that the quality of the child’s treatment, care, and chances of survival should not be determined by their geographical location. We earnestly encourage everyone to participate in this global initiative, sharing insights into challenges and contributing to positive advancements in the ongoing efforts to address childhood cancer.
“CCI and SIOP advocate for a world where the inequalities and challenges faced by children with cancer are comprehensively understood and addressed by political leaders, decision-makers, social influencers, healthcare professionals, and the community at large. Every child with cancer deserves equitable access to healthcare.”
Explains Carina Schneider, Managing Director of CCI Europe, who will lead the campaign for the next three years.
