Children's Cancer Center, Mongolia

Children's Cancer Center Construction

The cost of medical care is high in Mongolia, and patients from needy families are often unable to receive the most basic treatment procedures, let alone optimal care. Since the 1990s, Mongolia´s economy has transitioned into a market-based economy, and vulnerable groups, such as children and disabled and elderly persons, often lack resources to obtain adequate treatment and cure for their illnesses. Although the government is actively seeking solutions to social problems, health education and preventative medical check-ups are sorely needed and often lacking.
Sadly there has been a surge in the incidence of cancer during the past ten to fifteen years. Eighty-six percent of the patients who have been diagnosed with cancer have been in the terminal stage, meaning that a chance for cure is slim. Many of these patients are children. The reasons for this high rate of cancer have not been determined, but some studies indicate the diet of Mongolians - - especially their food preservation techniques - - may have a connection with causes of
some cancers. Air pollution is high in Mongolian cities and may contribute to the increased cancer incidence as well.
