Many of those children lack access to adequate diagnosis or consistent treatment and care. In fact, of the estimated 400,000 children who develop cancer each year, only half are ever diagnosed. Many pediatric cancers are treatable, particularly in high-income countries where survival rates exceed 80%.
Established in 2018, St. Jude Global is working to decrease these disparities and improve the survival rates of all children everywhere.
In partnership with medical institutions, foundations, governments and others worldwide, St. Jude Global has brought a multi-layered global approach to ensure more children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases have access to quality care and treatment.
