The study gives researchers and policymakers a critical new understanding of the impact of paediatric cancer across this region. On the African continent, only South Africa operates a childhood cancer registry on the national level. This new monograph brings together data from 16 of the smaller localised registers, collecting this scattered knowledge for the first time and presenting it in an accessible format.
An accompanying editorial which sums up the findings and explains their impact has also been published: http://ecancer.org/journal/editorial/69-editorial-childhood-cancer-in-sub-saharan-africa.php
