Challenge

Many children in Nigeria continue to die from cancers that can be survived. Many of them having been to several clinics, health centers and hospitals in the course of illness with the diagnosis being missed. Even when diagnosis is made, families often have no idea how, or where to begin seeking treatment for their child. Community health workers need to have the early signs of cancer in children at the forefront of their mind, and know when and where to refer children with these signs

Solution

The handbooks provide simple, easy-to-understand, information about childhood cancer and where to seek guidance for a child that may have cancer or has been diagnosed already. They will educate the community about cancers in children; teach health workers what to look for and how to answer common questions; and provide information on how to seek for guidance, assistance, or treatment.

Long-Term Impact

This project will distribute 5,000 copies of the childhood cancer handbook across clinics, community health centers, and hospitals across Nigeria. Ultimately, this project will improve childhood cancer awareness; increase earlier detection of cancers in children; and subsequently increase survival of child cancer patients in Nigeria.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
