Dr James Downing discusses the global platform for access to childhood cancer medicines. He talks about the World Health Organization and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital's plans to establish a platform that will dramatically increase access to childhood cancer medicines around the world.

Nearly 60 years later, we stand with the World Health Organization, partner organisations and our Global Alliance collaborators to expand that promise for children worldwide.
