SIOP’s vision is that no child should die of cancer and that cure can be achieved with no or minimal late effects.
We strive to achieve this vision:
• by advocating globally on behalf of patients and families to ensure that every child and young adult with cancer has access to state of the art treatment and care
• by providing training opportunities for all childhood cancer care providers worldwide, on the latest clinical and scientific advances through meetings, networking, and educational outreach for continuing professional development by promoting and advancing basic, clinical, and other research,and by supporting collaborative opportunities and translating scientific discovery to improve the outcomes for children with cancer
• by supporting through those caring for children and young adults with cancer to provide the best curative and palliative therapies
• by advocating for appropriate long term follow up for survivors
We encourage all healthcare professionals involved in work on cancer in children and young adults to join SIOP, attend our congresses and regional meetings, and use SIOP as a means of developing their networks. Join SIOP and help us achieve our goals.
