St. Jude is expanding its reach around the world with the launch of St. Jude Global. At a May 24 press conference, the hospital unveiled this bold new initiative that grows and strengthens its efforts to improve access to care for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases in every corner of the world.
St. Jude is investing more than $100 million in St. Jude Global to achieve an ambitious goal of influencing the care of 30% of children with cancer worldwide within the next decade.
In 2016, St. Jude formed the Department of Global Pediatric Medicine to accelerate its work to ensure that children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases have access to quality care and treatment — no matter where they live. With these ambitious objectives in focus, the Department of Global Pediatric Medicine created St. Jude Global.
St. Jude Global is a unique, comprehensive initiative that leverages the resources and expertise of St. Jude and partners around the world. It will create a network of interactive programs and institutions, forming a global alliance that will improve access to care, enhance the quality of care children receive, and provide better options for cures.
