Challenge

The Colombian health system has suffered a crisis in recent years, despite the existence of the Childhood Cancer Law, many children suffer delays in attention due to administrative barriers. Most families do not know the law and their rights, therefore, this project will provide education and psychosocial support.

Solution

This project will provide emotional support, education about the illness and rights in health, artistic therapy during chemotherapy, give cards for transportation and food for the neediest families, monthly monitoring to identify barriers to access to health care as well as the management to improve access to health services for children with cancer.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of this project will be reflected in the reduction of barriers to access to medical care and therefore in greater compliance with the law for all children with cancer in the country. The 430 children will have a strong support network to allow them to face the process of treatment and recovery of in a more positive way. Families will have a better understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of their children, their self-care and their rights and duties in health matters.
