Each year, more than 35,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer and more than 6,000 die of cancer. Over 500,000 long-term survivors of childhood cancer live in Europe today and two thirds of them experience long-term health and psycho-social problems due to their disease.
SIOP Europe is the only pan-European organisation representing clinical professionals working in the field of childhood cancers, currently counting over 2,300 members across 35 European countries and continues to grow.
SIOP Europe’s Mission is to ensure the best possible care and outcome for all children and adolescents with cancer in Europe. To achieve this goal, SIOP Europe is addressing the main challenges faced in European paediatric oncology through a multidisciplinary and pan-European perspective.
“”SIOP Europe’s Strategic Plan Update (2021-2026) is an important refresh of our key objectives and I am enthusiastic to engage with our community in its delivery. Our Board Members are eager to collaborate with all our members and partners to accomplish our mission for our community of children and young patients with cancer””. — Prof Pamela Kearns (SIOP Europe President).
Main Objective: Beating childhood cancer: tackle inequalities and increase the quality of life for survivors.
