In January 1992, under the radiation protection research and training programme, a panel of experts was set up to evaluate the current situation concerning reported increased rates of thyroid cancer in children living near Chernobyl at the time of the nuclear reactor accident on 26 April 1986. This report documents the findings of the panel with respect to the occurrence of childhood thyroid cancer in Belarus as of November 1992, and makes strong recommendations for urgent technical and humanitarian assistance and research cooperation.
