New global childhood cancer effort among World Health Organization, St. Jude and global partners aims to cure at least 60 percent of children with six of the most common kinds of cancer worldwide by 2030.
At St. Jude we are constantly working to discover new life-saving treatments, but we must ensure that these treatments are reaching children around the world, regardless of if they are patients at our hospital. We know that the best way to do this is to share information and ideas with other cancer institutions and physicians around the world. We do this through our new St. Jude Global program. This program ensures that children have access to quality care and treatment, no matter where they live. The Biden Cancer Initiative has just named St. Jude Global as one of their FiERCE Award inaugural recipients for our effort toward reducing cancer disparities. We are honored to be recognized for this as it is so important to us as an institution.
