We would like to invite you to join an exciting initiative, the SIOP Global Mapping of Paediatric Oncology Services.

The main objective of this effort is to collect information via a survey on the current landscape of paediatric oncology services around the world, and the resources available in each individual country.

The survey includes questions regarding your practice and environment and should take less than 10 minutes of your time.

The global mapping project would not be possible without the generous assistance from My Child Matters -  Sanofi Espoir Foundation
