The St. Jude-VIVA Forum in Paediatric Oncology (SJVF) is the combined effort between world leader St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, Tennessee, USA) and the Singapore-based charity organisation VIVA Foundation for Children with Cancer. The SJVF provides paediatric oncologists in Asia the opportunity to learn and network with world and regional leaders, as well as to foster collaborations in order to save the lives of more children.

Over the years, SJVF has grown from a two-day conference to an umbrella of knowledge-share ring platforms and collaborative meetings. The platforms include to subspeciality meetings such as St. Jude-VIVA Paediatric Pathology Symposium, VIVA-Asia Blood and Marrow Transplant Spring School, as well as the VIVA Asia Nursing Symposium. 

With some of the very best speakers in the world and region coming forward to generously share their know follow-up to bridge the gap between the developed and developing countries, SJVF is increasingly being acknowledged as one of the leading paediatric oncology conferences in the region. The annual attendance comprising scientists, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals continues to grow and diversify.

As more scientists, doctors, nurses from all over the world come together to share and grow their knowledge in the field of paediatric oncology, it is VIVA's hope and wish that more children with cancer, regardless of geography and, will receive better medical care and stand a high chance of cure, survival and post-treatment quality of life.

We are pleased to announce that the 17th St. Jude-VIVA Forum will be returning in a hybrid format from 2-5 March 2023, with a series of knowledge-sharing platforms, collaborative meetings for paediatric oncology professionals.
