Abstract

Pediatric Oncology in Israel has developed through the last 4 decades and currently outcome of children with cancer in Israel is similar to what is being achieved by international cooperative groups. Each year 450 children with cancer are being diagnosed and treated in specialized pediatric oncology centers. We describe the health care system and specifically focus on delay in diagnosis, late effects, palliative care and end of life issues. Finally we describe our achievements and list major challenges and future goals, in further improving patients care.
