International Childhood Cancer Day 2019 – Providing better cancer data will help reduce the burden of childhood cancer

International Childhood Cancer Day 2019

Each year, an estimated 215 000 cancers are diagnosed in children younger than 15 years, and about 85 000 cancers in those aged 15–19 years. These estimates are based on data collected by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) from population-based cancer registries around the world.

IARC is part of the WHO Global Initiative for Childhood Cancer, which aims to reach a survival rate of at least 60% for children with cancer globally by 2030.

To mark International Childhood Cancer Day 2019, IARC Scientist Dr Eva Steliarova-Foucher, of the IARC Section of Cancer Surveillance, explains why it is so important to collect high-quality data on childhood cancer incidence and survival, as well as how income inequality affects this undertaking.
