With the intention of addressing the needs of children with cancer in Bangladesh, the British Columbia Cancer Agency, Canada, organised an international forum, bringing together key local decision makers and stakeholders from United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and Japan, with international childhood cancer specialists in a two day workshop, entitled 'Exploration and setting priorities for childhood cancer in Bangladesh'. The objective was to explore the incidence and nature of paediatric cancer within Bangladesh and design and implement research and intervention programs aimed at combating childhood cancer in this and other resource limited countries.
