Mindanao Pediatric Cancer Care Network

The Mindanao Pediatric Cancer Care Network is a network of satellite facilities in strategic areas of Mindanao connected to at central unit at Southern Philippines Medical Center. It aims to extend child cancer care to areas at risk of poor access to existing specialist care and promote early child cancer detection to improve survival and chances of cure.

This pediatric cancer care system follows a road map which consists of a general plan, time line, budget, outcome measures and reporting process. It is geared towards strengthening SPMC Children’s Cancer Institute and SPMC Blood Diseases Unit in its role as a central unit and to create dedicated teams at the satellites. The central unit coordinates knowledge and technology transfer through training and continuing education. A referral network is established and provisions are made to enhance communications for seamless referrals. The MPCCN priorities include acute care, early child cancer detection, prompt referral and follow up care.
