What The Lenity Scholarships mean for Tonga
The Lenity Scholarship Program – the first of its kind to exist in Australia - will raise nursing care to a new level of excellence in the Kingdom of Tonga.
The health of the Tongan people is of the highest priority for the Tongan Government. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) - such as cardiovascular and diabetes - are endemic and present an increasing drain on the economy. These diseases contribute to the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Tonga. (The World Health Organisation reported that NCDs accounted for around 74% of all deaths in Tonga in 2008.)
Early detection, prevention and management are critical. Poor diet, lack of physical exercise, smoking and the harmful use of alcohol are the main contributing factors.
Compounding this issue is that Tonga, with a population of approximately 107,000, is spread over an archipelago of over 170 islands covering 750 square kilometres.
Research and Clinical applications for the elimination of childhood cancer are financially supported by Lenity.
This is a national initiative and one of the world’s most comprehensive child cancer personalized medicine studies. It is led by the Children’s Cancer Institute and the Kids Cancer Centre at Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick in collaboration with scientists from 19 leading Australian and international research institutes and doctors from all 8 of Australia’s paediatric cancer centres. It is one of the most exciting childhood cancer research initiatives ever undertaken in Australia to tackle the most serious cases of infant, childhood and adolescent cancer.
