Russia's Raisa Gorbachev Foundation (RGF) for child cancer has announced that, despite recent funding shortfalls, it is now in a position to equip what it claims will be Moscow's first dedicated paediatric oncology hospital. Following a fund-raising event in London last week, an RGF spokesperson said that the recent injection of funds to equip the Children's Centre of Hematology and Transplantation (CCHT) will enable it to open probably by September 2007. The RGF recently reported a Euro14m ($19m) shortfall to buy the equipment, despite the building being complete.
