World Child Cancer (WCC) is a UK registered charity and works to improve diagnosis, treatment and support for children with cancer, and their families, in low and middle-income countries. Their programmes work to provide improvements to treatment, early diagnosis, family support and advocacy across 12 countries: Bangladesh, Cameroon, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Kosovo, Malawi, Mexico, Myanmar, Nepal, The Philippines and Vietnam.

WCC partners specialised healthcare professionals from high-income countries to those in low-income ones to improve treatment standards as well as twinning hospitals in resource-rich countries with those with limited resources in order to train healthcare workers and improve the quality of care available to children with cancer. WCC provides financial and emotional support to children and their families at diagnosis and beyond, to limit the damage cancer causes.

WCC educates primary healthcare professionals and raises community awareness on spotting the early warning signs of childhood cancer to enable quicker referrals to hospitals so even the most vulnerable children have access to adequate healthcare. They campaign to ensure national and international stakeholders are aware of the importance of investing in improving the access and quality of healthcare, including essential medicines, for children with cancer worldwide.
