A global movement in pediatric cancer that brings together individuals and institutions dedicated to the shared vision of improving the quality of health care delivery and increasing survival rates of children with cancer and blood disorders worldwide.
The St. Jude Global Alliance is a collaboration of hospitals, foundations, governments and other key partners who are united with the shared vision of improving access to quality care and increasing survival rates of children with cancer and blood disorders worldwide. Following the inaugural gathering of 167 participants representing 52 countries in December 2018, the first member institution signed an agreement in April 2019. Now, two years later, the St. Jude Global Alliance has grown to 100 members and counting. These institutions represent more than 50 countries in seven regions: Asia Pacific, Central and South America, China, Eastern Mediterranean and South Asia, Eurasia, Mexico and Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as Spain.
“Together, we continue to build the Alliance that we want and that we need. We will continue to connect and focus on our patients, to try to unite and inspire the hope that we all need. All of us work together in the hope for a better future for children with cancer. Together we can do it, for every child, everywhere.” – Carlos Rodriguez-Galindo, MD, Director of St. Jude Global
