In 2012, the French African Pediatric Oncology Group established the African School of Pediatric Oncology (EAOP), a training program supported by the Sanofi Espoir Foundation’s My Child Matters program. As part of the EAOP, the pediatric oncology training diploma is a 1-year intensive training program. We present this training and certification program as a model for subspecialty training for low- and middle-income countries.

At the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7), Access Accelerated, in partnership with the Japan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (JPMA), hosted a side event titled, “Accelerating Sustainable UHC by Improving Access to NCD Care,” to explore work currently underway to increase access to non-communicable disease (NCD) care in the context of global momentum for Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
