Project overview:

World Child Cancer (WCC) focuses on increasing survival rates in developing countries by expanding the workforce of well-trained cancer specialists and increasing awareness around the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer. Through this program, the UBS Optimus Foundation will support WCC to:

  • develop a Centre of Excellence to lead regional training and demonstrate best practice, potentially resulting in a higher quality of care for pediatric oncology patients
  • deliver early warning signs training to increase referral rates, thus increasing demand for cancer treatment
