    Sultanate makes headway with cancer treatment

    In Brunei Darussalam, 335 children aged 0-19 years were diagnosed with cancer between 2002 and 2021. Data from the Hospital Based Cancer Registry showed an increase in the number of children (0-12 years) diagnosed with cancer, going from 61 cases from 2000-2009 to 117 cases from 2010-2022.

    Despite the increase, the cancer mortality rate in the same period had dropped from 31.25 per cent to 27 per cent.
