Aria Guide Logo


The Adapted Resource and Implementation Application (ARIA) Guide is a free, online clinical resource that meets the global need for comprehensive, resource-adapted guidance on treatment of childhood and adolescent cancers. 


St. Jude Global and the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP) have partnered with several leading global organizations, such as the Paediatric Radiation Oncology Society (PROS), Childhood Cancer International (CCI), and the International Society of Paediatric Surgical Oncology (IPSO) to create resource-stratified, evidence-based guidelines to ensure that health care professionals all over the world have the necessary information to safely diagnose, treat and manage childhood and adolescent cancers whenever they practice.
