Access to Care

Better Access to Care.

Numerous studies have revealed that improved access to responsive, quality care leads to better survivorship outcomes for children/adolescents with cancer. Thus, CCI members work in collaboration with partners and allies to strengthen health systems, improve health facilities, enhance quality of care and build  robust supportive care mechanisms, systems and processes.

In low and middle income countries, this oftentimes involves leveraging and using private funds to supplement public sector   budget for childhood cancer care related interventions.

This includes, among others :

  • Establishing and maintaining childhood cancer support units in hospitals;  
  • Providing and paying for salaries of additional key medical staff (e.g. pediatric oncology doctors, pediatric oncology nurses, pathologists , social workers, child life specialists etc);
  • Initiating and /or supporting upgrading of health facilities infrastructure and technology ;
  • Forming linkages and helping establish referral centers with private providers or out of state/country providers in areas where public sector diagnostic and treatment centers are not available;
  • Creating  therapeutic spaces for children and their families in hospital;  
  • Establishing parent homes/family transition homes for families of patients while in treatment;
