The Australian and New Zealand Children's Haematology/Oncology Group (ANZCHOG) is the leading body representing the interests of Australian and New Zealand children and adolescents with blood diseases and cancer.
ANZCHOG’s vision is to ensure that all children and adolescents with cancer and associated blood diseases are provided with the highest quality, evidence-based care to ensure optimal outcomes in terms of survivorship and quality of life.
The research and clinical trials conducted by ANZCHOG are vital for improvements in the cure, treatment and care of Australian and New Zealand children with cancer. ANZCHOG is partnering with the world’s leading children’s cancer clinical trial groups to ensure that Australian and New Zealand children have access to the best available treatments.
