For hundreds of thousands of children diagnosed with cancer in low- and middle-income countries, treatment is unaffordable, severely limiting their chances of survival.

Axar.az reports that this was reported by the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at his weekly press briefing in Geneva that only a quarter of low-income countries provide childhood cancer drugs through public benefits:

“This puts children and families through significant suffering and financial hardship, and increases their risk of receiving substandard and counterfeit medicines. As a result, the survival rate of children in these countries is less than 30 percent compared to their peers in high-income countries. However, in developed countries, the prevalence of cancer among minors is 90 percent less.
