Welcome to the Atlantic Provinces Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Network


APPHON/ROHPPA acts as a vehicle for communication, education, advocacy, and development of standards by and for member organizations, groups and individuals to achieve shared goals of comprehensive health services and clinical care, education and research related to the health care of children with hematologic or oncologic disorders and for their families.

Our History

APPHON/ROHPPA was established in 1995 to enable access for Atlantic province infants, children, adolescents and young adults with pediatric cancer or serious hematologic disorder to comprehensive, current, integrated, evidence-based pediatric hematologic/oncologic care delivered as close to home as effectively and safely feasible. APPHON/ROHPPA has fostered a strong spirit of collaboration among health caregivers throughout Atlantic Canada.
