St. Jude has partnered with hospitals and institutions worldwide to improve the survival rates of children with catastrophic illnesses globally. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has partner sites in Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, Morocco, the Philippines and Venezuela.
Here are some of the dramatic differences that St. Jude partner sites have made:
Brazil: St. Jude opened a second partnership in Brazil in 2012 in Barretos, providing cancer treatment to children from some of the most remote areas of the country.
Chile: St. Jude has worked closely with Hospital Luis Calvo Mackenna in Santiago since 1997. Today, the hospital is a national center for bone marrow transplant, and the Latin American Center for Pediatric Oncology Nursing Excellence, established in 2008 at the hospital, offers specialized training to nurse educators from other partner countries in Central and South America.
Ecuador: When the partnership with a Quito hospital began in 2002, overall survival rates for childhood cancers were estimated at less than 30 percent. Those rates are now reported at more than 70 percent. The rate of abandonment of treatment was reduced from 15 percent to less than 1 percent.
El Salvador: The five-year survival rate for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer, went from 10 percent to 50 percent in the first five years of collaboration with St. Jude. Today, the ALL survival rate is approximately 70 percent.
Guatemala: In Guatemala City, a partner site since 1997, survival rates for some types of cancer have increased from 28 percent to 70 percent. The rate of abandonment of treatment there has decreased from 42 percent to less than 2 percent.
Lebanon: The Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon at the American University of Beirut Medical Center celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012 and is now treating 88 percent of all childhood cancer patients in Lebanon, and also treats patients from Syria, Palestine (West Bank) and Iraq.
