Each year, more than 160,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with cancer while an estimated 100,000 die from the disease. While eighty percent (80%) of children with cancer survive in wealthier countries, the reality is vastly different for those in poorer countries where 90% of all children with cancer die. Lack of access to good quality, essential medicines, early diagnosis and timely treatment and care are three major reasons why children with cancer in developing countries often do not survive.
