For the most recent information about the Australian Cancer Plan, please visit our brand-new interaction centre. Every Australian is affected by cancer in some way.
Health care providers, charities, and other organisations all around Australia are working nonstop to support and care for those impacted by cancer. Researchers are looking for novel approaches to treating, diagnosing, and coping with the disease in all of its manifestations. Additionally, plans, guidelines, and strategies are being developed by governments, policymakers, and business organisations to direct and shape future activities.
The influence of novel models of care and ways of working is frequently restricted to specific cancer kinds or geographical areas, and the pace of this crucial effort is frequently slowed down by system-level constraints.
This perception will change thanks to the Australian Cancer Plan.
We can build on solid foundations. Australia has some of the greatest cancer results in the world, and the majority of cancer types are seeing higher survival rates. However, not every Australian had this experience. The sort of cancer a person has, where they reside, their background and current circumstances, as well as their experiences during diagnosis and treatment, all affect their risk of developing cancer. Such variations and disparities are undesirable.
We need national action to address issues that contribute to variations in cancer incidence and that result in variation in cancer outcomes and experience if we are to attain world-class cancer outcomes for all Australians. Additionally, we require a method for disseminating, studying, and expanding initiatives that are having a positive impact.
We have the chance to create and implement a revolutionary national strategy to pinpoint and address pressing cancer control concerns that call for coordinated, national action.
We need your support to accomplish that.
