Improving cancer care for children and young people

published in The Lancet Oncology, March 2013

The outstanding oncology journal, The Lancet Oncology, is publishing a Series of articles dedicated to paediatric oncology, which is an important contribution to the global discourse on paediatric oncology issues.

Despite the ongoing global effort to prevent, cure, and control cancer, the specific needs of children and young people are often overlooked. Although 80% of childhood cancers are potentially curable with current treatments, every day around 250 children worldwide lose their lives to cancer.

This series discusses the educational, research, and care needs of children and young people with cancer in all countries, and proposes a broad range of solutions for the next decade.
