SickKids Foundation – Caribbean Initiative
In the Caribbean, children with cancer and serious blood disorders often face a poorer chance of survival. Due to a lack of health-care professionals with specialized training, limited technology, sparse data on disease outcomes, and unique geopolitical challenges, many patients are currently not able to receive the life-saving care they desperately need.
SickKids is one of the world’s top children’s hospitals and is committed to building health-care capacity in other countries through the SickKids Centre for Global Child Health. As a child health leader, SickKids has the know-how and the track record of successful partnerships to deliver the best possible care to patients everywhere. Over the past four and a half years, SickKids has been working together with seven local partners in six Caribbean countries to improve the capacity to diagnose and care for children in the region.
Your support for the SickKids-Caribbean Initiative (SCI) will allow SickKids and our Caribbean partners to close the gap in survival rates and improve health outcomes for children living in the Caribbean with paediatric cancer and blood disorders.
