The Children's Oncology Clinic operates at the National Oncology Center, which plays a crucial role in the fight against cancer in the country. The center has run an oncological center for children since 2012.
The National Oncology Center provides methodological, scientific, and training support to oncology specialists and public health professionals in the field.
In 2015, the National Oncology Center established the National Cancer Registry based on CanReg5 software provided by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
Through its epidemiological research, the center contributes to the expansion of knowledge about cancer, prevalence, and distribution of risk factors among the population in Azerbaijan, thus contributing to the design and development of effective and targeted cancer prevention and control programs.
Its active participation in the research related to molecular and genetic aspects of the oncological diseases as well as on diagnosis and treatment helps to advance the cancer care in Azerbaijan.
