Dear SIOP Members and Partners,

The SIOP PARC Programme continues to expand. Thanks to the generous support of an unrestricted grant from Amazon and Foundation S, the SIOP PARC Programme for Advancing Research Capacity for Cooperative Groups in Low- and Middle-Income Countries has now provided grants of 75,000 euros each to the Indian Pediatric Hematology Oncology Group (INPHOG) and the the Pediatric Oncology East and Mediterranean (POEM) Group to support their research capacities for the next two years.

These grants add to the already ongoing PARC Programme support to Cancare Africa and GALOP.

SIOP is proud to support the activities of these groups and help to generate new and relevant evidence for pediatric oncology in LMICs.


Dr. Guillermo Chantada, SIOP President
