Towards a reference centre for the diagnosis of Childhood cancer in Dakar, Senegal
Cancer in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) become a major cause of death, each year 200 000 to 300 000 new childhood cancer cases are diagnosed worldwide. In 2018, the WHO made a priority of managing these cases through the Global Initiative for Childhood Cancer (GICC). The impressive gap between high-income countries and LMICs where 80% of cases occurred with only 20% or less survival while 80% children are cured in high-income countries justify the WHO-GICC target for LMICs to attain 60% survival rate for children by 2030. One of the major difficulties to access healthcare is lack of capacity in cancer diagnosis.
Our project to develop a Reference Center for the Diagnosis of Childhood Cancers in Dakar, Senegal is linked to the aim of GICC.
