COLLABORATION & NETWORKING
CCI believes in the power of collaboration to create breakthroughs and sustain change.
It believes alone we can make a difference; working together, we can create lasting changes.
It engages international child focused organizations to support childhood cancer signature events as well as integrate and scale up childhood cancer initiatives in their program portfolios. To amplify the focus and expand the reach of its initiatives, it works alongside other global cancer focused organizations.

LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER
by Stefanie Liener and Michaela Willi, Sao Paulo (2009)
This workshop was held to discuss the importance of sharing experiences and resources and to talk about the advantages of collaboration between parents and survivors.

A Handbook for New Childhood Cancer Foundations, especially for Developing Countries (2008)
Members of the Executive Committee of ICCCPO created this handbook.
This new handbook incorporates ideas and experiences that have been gained over the years by people within ICCCPO, and is intended to be of value to all those involved in the creation and development of groups involved with childhood cancer, especially in developing countries. It is hoped that it will evolve over time to incorporate input from many other people, so that it becomes a true reflection of the experiences of groups throughout the world.
