Dear all

We are pleased to announce that the Changing the World for the children with Cancer special issue has now been published online.

This Special Issue is dedicated to pediatric oncology in resource-limited settings, encompassing various facets of pediatric oncology, ranging from an analysis of childhood cancer in a middle-income country to the financial dimensions of pediatric cancer care in a low-income country. One paper highlights the current situation of childhood cancer in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Additionally, the esteemed organisation SIOP has offered valuable perspectives on the advancements in childhood cancer care, encapsulating their global impact.

Pediatric oncology survival rates have soared to over 80% in high-income countries, whilst are as low as 10-20% in certain low and middle-income regions.  The accessibility to cutting-edge diagnostics and contemporary therapies across much of the world remains a significant barrier to equitable cancer care in pediatric oncology.
