St. Jude is expanding its reach around the world with the launch of St. Jude Global. At a recent press conference, James R. Downing, MD, the hospital’s president and chief executive officer (pictured), unveiled a bold new initiative to improve access to care for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases in every corner of the world.

The hospital’s goal is to influence the care of 30% of children with cancer worldwide within the next decade. St. Jude Global will leverage the resources and expertise of the hospital and its partners around the world.

The initiative 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.
