The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation, Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers and Baylor College of Medicine plan to jointly create a treatment network for children with cancer and blood diseases in three sub-Saharan African countries.
The $100 million initiative, Global HOPE (Hematology-Oncology Pediatric Excellence), aims to build the medical capacity needed to diagnose and properly treat these conditions in Botswana, Malawi and Uganda — whose combined population of 54 million is served by only five pediatric oncologists.
The partnership will recruit physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals worldwide to train about 4,800 local healthcare providers to treat kids with cancer and blood disorders such as sickle cell disease (SCD), which is common throughout much of Africa.
