Join our network to give paediatric oncology a stronger voice in Europe!

The paediatric oncology community in Europe is the foundation and driving force of our organisation: this is why we invite you to join our network!  We currently count more than 1,934 members from 36 countries in the European region.

SIOPE membership is based on already established European National Paediatric Haemato-Oncology Societies or groups (NaPHOS), which encourage their members to become part of the SIOPE network. In countries where no such NaPHOS exist, medical institutions and treatment centres specialised in cancer care for children and young people can join and allow the paediatric oncology professionals in their institute to become SIOPE members.  To ensure an open and ever-expanding community, professionals who are not members of a NaPHOS can also join.
