Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu: I participated in the inaugural Global Telethon for Pediatric Cancer hosted by OncoDaily

Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu shared a post on Twitter/X

“On the 15th of February which was Childhood Cancer Day, I participated in the inaugural Global Telethon for Pediatric Cancer hosted by OncoDaily.
Amidst an array of distinguished speakers, I shed light on the distinct challenges of fighting childhood cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries.

Children experience delayed diagnosis, limited treatment options, and disproportionately high mortality rates compared to their counterparts in high-income countries.”
