Abstract

In 2018, the World Health Organization declared childhood cancer as a global disease burden, launching a Global Initiative to improve survival to 60% worldwide by 2030. If achieved, it is estimated that an extra 1 million children’s lives will be saved. In the UK, childhood cancer is the largest illness cause of death in childhood in 1–19-year-olds and the incidence continues to rise. Unlike in adult cancers, there are no modifiable risk factors or cost-effective screening options and so early diagnosis is key to reducing morbidity, mortality, and late effects from treatment burden.
