My Child Matters Grant Award to fight childhood cancer

About the organisation:

The Sanofi Espoir Foundation was created in October 2010 to consolidate more than 20 years of commitment to national and international solidarity. Its mission is to contribute to reducing health inequalities among populations that need it most by applying a socially responsible approach.

If you are a health care professional specialized in pediatric oncology, with a project aiming at giving all children with cancer, wherever they live in the world, the same opportunity to get well again, this is your chance!

My Child Matters programme was initiated by the Sanofi Espoir Foundation in December 2005 in order to fight childhood cancer and reduce health inequalities worldwide. Collaborations with engaged partners in low- and middle-income countries and international stakeholders constitute the strength of My Child Matters.

Since the beginning, this programme has supported 58 pediatric oncology projects in 42 developing countries worldwide (Africa, Asia and Latin America). To date, more than 85 000 children benefited from My Child Matters and 25 000 health care professionals were trained.

Beyond funding, My Child Matters also provides full support by mentoring, training sessions and sharing best practices. Scientific communications are also encouraged.

The Sanofi Espoir Foundation is pleased to announce the call for new 3-Year project proposals for My Child Matters Grant Awards 2019-2021.
