United in the fight 
against childhood cancer

In Switzerland, around 300 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer every year, more than half of them are infants and children under the age of four. Even though 4 out of 5 children can now be cured, statistically that still means that one child dies almost every week. Together with its member organisations, Childhood Cancer Switzerland is dedicated to improving the situation of children with cancer, their families and long-term survivors throughout Switzerland.

Special news: Care leave comes into force

Children with cancer need parents by their side to accompany them intensively over a long period of time – an extremely difficult situation for working mothers and fathers. This is why Childhood Cancer Switzerland has worked, with great success, at the political level to ensure that families are better protected by law. The new federal law on improving the compatibility of working and caring for family members is coming into force in 2021. Find out more here.

 Fields of action

In the fight against childhood cancer, we are active throughout Switzerland in the following areas with our own projects, awareness campaigns, political commitment on behalf of those affected, a national contact point for long-term survivors and financial support for our member organisations.
