According to the World Health Organization, cancer is a leading cause of death for children and adolescents worldwide. In high-income countries, more than 80% of children with cancer are cured, but in many low-income and lower middle-income countries like Vietnam, only 20% are cured. Reasons for lower survival rates are poverty, lack of information, and poor access to essential medicines and technologies which are costly. The number of cancer patients among children in Vietnam is on the rise and there is a shortage of national resources to provide adequate treatment and support for those children and their families.
