Dear colleagues and friends,

The global pandemic of SARS-Cov-2 (COVID19) is presenting extremely challenging times for all those working to care for children with cancer and their families around the world. Many of you have had to change the way you provide care and contribute your staff and personal efforts towards other services in your hospitals. Every service is having to plan and re-plan as local situations are evolving rapidly.

The SIOP Board of Directors has been working with colleagues from St Jude global programme and clinicians working in the Lombardy area of Italy to provide our members and other healthcare professionals with easier access to what is currently known on the impact of the virus on the paediatric population and the management of children with cancer. We have just published the first of two planned articles in Pediatric Blood and Cancer, which is available as free access to all (click on the article title to access or use the button below).

Early advice on managing children with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic and a call for sharing experiences.
