Challenge

In Ghana 1,300 new cases of childhood cancer are expected per year. Due to the downfall in the economy not all of them receive required drugs, medical products and palliative equipment on time and thus the social well-being of families significantly deteriorates. People whose treatment for cancer is delayed by even one month have in many cases a 6 to 13% higher risk of dying - a risk that keeps rising the longer their treatment does not begin.

Solution

We will ensure that children with cancer are provided with the most advanced drugs, medical products and creative emotional support. This will ensure the right of each child to medical treatment of good quality and increase the chances of recovery.

Long-Term Impact

Medical treatment and creative emotional support will enhance children's physical state and psychological well-being and they will be better able to recover from the disease.
