Today, February 15th, the world is commemorating the international children’s cancer day. On this day, the world joins together to fight this dreadful disease, through increasing awareness with children’s cancer and supporting sick children and their families.
According to the WHO, cancer is one of the main causes of children’s death, where about 400 thousand children aged between 0 and 19 years contract the disease annually.
WHO statistics reveal that 80% of cancer diseased children live in developing countries, and that there are 12 types of cancer threatening children, where the most common of them are leukemia and brain cancer, because of pollution, absence of advanced healthcare, lack of awareness and absence of early disease detection.
With the progress of cancer treatment in developed countries, over-all survival rate increased to reach 80%. Early diagnosis is the first step for defeating cancer, where studies reveal that 40% of cancer patients are curable if diagnosed early, and that the cost of treating early detected cases is 2 to 4 times less than the cost of treating patients who were diagnosed a later stage.

The Hospital offers latest equipment and works on developing and automating the Hospital’s departments such as labs, clinical pharmacy and blood bank, besides applying latest international treatment protocols, world quality control and infection control measures and improving healthcare provision through continuous training programs to all its staff.
