How school systems respond to migration has an enormous impact on migrant integration. Schools can be a vehicle for social integration and mobility, and for developing a sense of belonging to the local community. But schools can also be an isolating and discriminatory place and act as a barrier to integration. Within schools, teachers are key for creating opportunities for learning and participation, especially for migrant students.
The aims of the ALLTogether study are to improve survival and quality of survival for children and young adults with ALL. ALL in young people has excellent outcome with >90% survival in children and about 75% in young adults. However, patients still die of diseases after relapse as a result of under-treatment.
With this application we want to strengthen the scientific Nordic collaboration and research infrastructure within the research area of socioeconomic consequences of long-term survival of childhood cancer. Knowledge of such late effects in childhood cancer survivors is highly requested by the survivors and their families.
