Mortality rates for childhood cancer in general, mainly leukemia, have sharply declined over the past 40 years in economically developed countries, due to improved diagnosis, treatment, and reporting methods, but Mexico, the country that had the highest rates of childhood cancer deaths in 2005, did not have a pediatric oncologist, up to the year 2000, in 13 of its 32 states [71, 79].

In Latin America, the cure rate for childhood cancer remains considerably lower than that in developed countries, despite some progress.
