An Evening to Support The Aslan Project:

Transforming Pediatric Cancer Care in Low-Resource Settings

The Aslan Project is a Washington, DC-based non-profit organization that seeks to address inequalities in global pediatric cancer care by sharing our knowledge and expertise -- teaching health care professionals in low-resource settings to recognize childhood cancers early, diagnose them correctly, and treat them effectively and compassionately using affordable drugs, appropriate treatment regimens, and proper palliation.

The Aslan Project has spearheaded the development of a comprehensive pediatric cancer health system in Ethiopia, piloting the country’s first pediatric cancer program in 2012 at Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital in Addis Ababa. Aslan has since exported this successful model to Jimma University Medical Center in southwestern Ethiopia, which celebrated the first anniversary of its dedicated pediatric cancer unit in August 2017. Aslan also is honored to be working with the Ethiopian Ministry of Health and other key stakeholders to build a pediatric cancer capability throughout the country as well as with Gertrude Children’s Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya to train its first pediatric hematologist/oncologist.

We invite you join us on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 6:00 – 10:00pm to celebrate these and other achievements in furtherance of our mission to provide equitable and just access to treatment for all children with cancer.
