Childhood Cancer Registration Workshop

Registration of Childhood Cancer: Challenges and Opportunities

Lyon, 22 October 2019


The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is pleased to host a workshop on registration of cancer in children on Tuesday 22 October 2019. The theme of the workshop is aligned with the Global Initiative for Childhood Cancer (GICC), launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) in September 2018.

The aims of the workshop are:

  • to disseminate information about the goals and activities of the GICC;

  • to identify gaps, needs, and barriers to provision of comparable high-quality data globally;

  • to propose mechanisms to monitor the progress of the GICC; and

  • to explore the use of data for a reduction of the burden of cancer in children.

The proceedings of the meeting will contribute to the development and success of the GICC.

The workshop is being organized by IARC, in collaboration with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, as the WHO Collaborating Centre for Childhood Cancer.

Registration to this workshop closed on 31 August 2019.

Please contact the Workshop Secretariat, if you have any question or comment.
