The Global Perspective: Management of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Developing Countries


Presentation Description: 
Imagine treating your patients in the absence of state-of-the-art facilities and technologies that are a given in Canada and other developed countries. What does care look like for Non-Hodgkin patients around the world?  This presentation discussed what is published about the epidemiology of pediatric Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in developing countries and how it differs from the high income countries, the special problems related to treatment, how protocols have been adjusted and what is known about outcomes.
