General Session: International Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nursing Initiatives: Challenges and Opportunities (102)

1CH  Since 1975, high-income countries (HIC) have made great strides in developing effective therapies to cure children and adolescents with cancer and enhance quality of life. Unfortunately, this success is not mirrored in low- and middle-income countries (L&MIC), where approximately 80% of the world’s children with cancer live. To address this serious inequity, international collaborations (often referred to as “twinning partnerships”) between organizations and professionals in HIC and their counterparts in L&MIC have been underway since the late 1980s.
