The main focus of this thesis is to provide an in-depth comparative analysis of the current medical models and non-profit models implemented in the United States and South Africa for pediatric cancer patients. The first four chapters will examine the medical and non-profit sector separately in each country. The purpose of these chapters is to give the reader a brief, yet comprehensive understanding of the circumstances involving the healthcare units and non-profit sectors in both countries. After examining these sectors separately, the final chapter aims to integrate both countries' models to establish a common ground between health care non-profits in the United States and South Africa. The goal of this thesis is to offer solutions on how South Africa can enrich and further develop their pediatric cancer non-profit sector by shadowing the policies and campaigns used by American pediatric cancer non-profits.
