SickKids celebrates Caribbean partnership

Toronto is celebrating the 47th annual Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto – the largest festival of its kind in North America – running from July 10 to Aug. 3.

The event features a number of events for families including the Junior Carnival Mas Band parade for kids and teens on Saturday, July 19, with 1,500 participants and young masqueraders joining to dance through the streets.

SickKids is celebrating its own collaboration with the Caribbean – the SickKids-Caribbean Initiative: Enhancing Capacity for Care in Paediatric Cancers and Blood Disorders.

Building upon strong and ongoing collaborations, the members of SickKids-Caribbean Initiative strive to improve the outcomes and quality of life for children with cancer and blood disorders living in six Caribbean countries: The Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

SickKids-Caribbean Initiative will develop a comprehensive strategy to strengthen the clinical management and treatment of children with cancer and blood disorders and help to build long-term and sustainable capacity for Caribbean partners; from diagnosis to follow-up care.
