Understanding the impact of childhood cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa

We have just published an important new study which gives unique insight into paediatric cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa. The article has been authored by Cristina Stefan, Freddie Bray, Jacques Ferlay, D Maxwell Parkin and Biying Liu and gives researchers and policymakers a critical new understanding of the impact of paediatric cancer across this region.

On the African continent, only South Africa operates a childhood cancer registry on the national level. This new monograph brings together data from 16 of the smaller localised registers, collecting this scattered knowledge for the first time and presenting it in an accessible format.

We have also published an editorial to accompany the study authored by D Maxwell Parkin and Cristina Stefan.
