Sandoz announces expanded partnership with World Child Cancer

31st July 2017

Sandoz has announced an expanded partnership with the leading charity group World Child Cancer to provide aid for paediatric cancer patients in four developing countries.

The company is expanding a pilot project with the charity that aims to improve access to treatment and optimise survival outcomes for children in the Philippines, Myanmar, Mexico and Ghana.

It builds on an existing partnership in the Philippines, where Sandoz is funding staff training needs and helping children to access diagnosis and subsequent treatment, by expanding it to cover three additional countries in across three continents.

An estimated 6,000 children develop cancer each year in these four nations, but only around 20 percent are ever diagnosed, with an even smaller percentage receiving effective treatment.

Peter Stenico, head of oncology at Sandoz, said: "Together with World Child Cancer, we believe we can make a real difference by enhancing the standard of care for children in these countries and, ultimately, improving childhood cancer survival rates."

In developing countries, the survival rate for childhood cancer is only around ten percent, compared to 80 percent in developed nations. Sandoz and World Child Cancer are aiming to raise this to around 60 percent through their work.
