The Colombian health system has suffered a crisis in recent years, despite the existence of the Law of childhood cancer, many children suffer inappropriate treatment because of administrative barriers. Most families are unaware of the law and their rights, therefore, this project will provide education and psychosocial support.

The long-term impact of this project will be reflected in the reduction of barriers to access to health care and therefore in greater compliance with the law for all children with cancer in the country . The 410 children a will have a solid support network to allow them to face the process of treatment and recovery of their health more positively. Also, families will know more about their rights and duties in health.
