International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP)

14th – 17th of October

The SIOP annual congress is the place to meet new people and share experiences and learning.  In 2020, we are in the continental home of the Children’s Oncology Group and expect to be flooded with the latest breakthroughs from their comprehensive clinical trials portfolio. The congress will be home to many international comparative debates and discussions from which we can all take home new ideas and inspiration.

Clinical research is equally important in low and middle income countries, several of whom have started work to implement the WHO Global Initiative on Childhood Cancer. The target is to double childhood cancer survival rates to at least 60% by 2030 for those living in resource-poor settings. Long term survival rates were last at this level in the late 1970s in high income countries. Through knowledge sharing and twinning partnerships to support care and research, it should be possible to accelerate improvement so that it does not take another 40 years to reach survival rates achievable with the current standard of care.

Improvements in diagnostics and risk stratification, linked to new therapies, have the potential to transform treatment and outcomes for children all over the world.
