  • Early Diagnosis of Childhood Cancer

    AIEPI cancer childhood ENGIn many countries, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children over 1 year of age, exceeded only by accidents.
    Fortunately, great progress has been made in the treatment of childhood cancer in recent years, permiting the development of new standardized clinical protocols, which have made it possible to resolve uncertainties and select the most appropriate guidelines for each neoplasm and, more importantly, for each patient's specific situation.
    In this regard, given the complexity of current therapies, children with cancer should be referred as early as possible to facilities that have specialized human and technical resources.
    This module for the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness aims to contribute to the effort of improving the capacity to identify the early signs of cancer in undergraduate and graduate medical and nursing students and primary care staff.

  • Expert Consultation on Prostate Cancer Screening and Early Detection in Latin America and the Caribbean. Meeting Report.
    Prostate cancer meeting report EN Late-stage diagnosis of prostate cancer contributes to the high mortality rates in LAC; however, screening and early detection of prostate cancer present a number of challenges. The use of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) remains controversial and the scientific community has not yet reached consensus on population-based prostate cancer screening strategies. As a result, the World Health Organization has not yet developed specific recommendations for prostate cancer screening, although guidance has been developed on the health system requirements for cancer screening and early detection programs.
