SIOP, the International Society of Paediatric Oncology, is a dynamic and vibrant global organisation dedicated to increasing knowledge about all aspects of childhood cancer. Our aim is to improve and optimise treatments throughout the world. SIOP’s vision is that no child should die of cancer.
We encourage all healthcare professionals involved in work on cancer in children and young adults to join SIOP, attend our congresses and regional meetings, and use SIOP as a means of developing their networks.
2015 International Childhood Cancer Day News Releases:
Dr Oleg Chestnov, Assistant Director-General for Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health at the World Health Organization notes "Every child has the right to quality cancer treatment and services, regardless of geography or financial situation." He underscores that "the majority of children with potentially curable cancers can get cured even in low-resource settings, and all children with advanced cancer can benefit from pain relief and palliative care wherever they live. Children’s rights cannot be fulfilled and protected unless preventing and treating cancers is included as a priority within national cancer control programs."
