As a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), SIOP has committed to contribute substantially to WHO activities according to the agreed and accepted working plan by:
1. Providing technical inputs on follow-up of regional/national workshops, local stakeholders workplans, and advocacy;
2. Supporting programmes that address competencies for childhood cancer control by disseminating WHO guidance and using the robust SIOP network;
3. Conducting advocacy activities to improve access to essential medicines and medical technologies, by performing a situational analysis, identifying barriers and supporting implementation of programmes in select countries;
SIOP is now a step further in placing the fight against Childhood and Adolescent Cancer
on the Global Agenda and making a difference
in the lives of children with cancer and their families worldwide.
The SIOP Global Advocacy Committee thanks the SIOP community and all partners
for their continuous support during the application process.
We look forward to using this opportunity to expand our work together to improve the global situation for children with cancer.With our best wishes,
Dr Eric Bouffet (President) & Dr Gabriele Calaminus (Head, Global Advocacy)
