Childhood Cancer

Cancer is a leading cause of death for children and adolescents around the world. 

Approximately 300,000 children aged 0 to 19 years old are diagnosed with cancer each year.

Childhood cancer generally cannot be prevented or screened.

In 2019, only 20% of countries had early detection guidelines.

That same year, only 33% had a defined referral system for medical resources.
