KKH and the Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) have reaffirmed 25 years of collaboration to promote the health and psychosocial well-being of children with cancer and their families.

Professor Alex Sia, Chief Executive Officer, KKH and Mr Ho Cheng Huat, Chairperson, CCF signed a Memorandum of Understanding in September 2022 to reinforce the provision of comprehensive, patient-centric care for the medical, physical, psychological, nutritional and social well-being of children with cancer and their families.

“KKH manages 70 per cent of children with cancer in Singapore. We continually seek breakthroughs in understanding and managing childhood cancers, using research and clinical innovation to develop novel therapies. We look forward to many more years of strong collaboration with CCF, to continue to improve our patients’ quality of life and survival,” shared Prof Alex Sia.

The renewed collaboration will see the further development of CCF-KKH cancer care programmes in cellular therapy, survivorship, and psychosocial and supportive care.
