Today, the Ministry of Health and the Belize Cancer Society signed an agreement with the Ministry of Health of Merida, Yucatan for the treatment of children with cancer from Belize. A release from the Ministry states that the agreement will allow children under the age of 18 to access treatment services in Merida once they have been referred by the Belize Cancer Society and the Ministry of Health - with costs being covered through the generous grant recently provided by the Social Security Board for this purpose. So how will it work? The release says that treatments available under this agreement include: specialist consultations, hospitalization, chemotherapy, biopsy, and imaging including CT scans and ultrasound and other treatments for children with cancer.
