Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation

The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) is an Australian charity established to protect and enhance women’s health by eliminating cervical cancer and enabling treatment for women with cervical cancer and related health issues.

Vision and mission

Cervical cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. In fact, it doesn’t have to exist at all.

ACCF’s mission is to minimise the incidence and burden of cervical cancer and related women’s health issues: to assist women, their families, and communities by developing and implementing practical and appropriate programs, and by partnering with like-minded governments, organisations, and individuals to achieve health outcomes which reduce marginalisation and contribute to developing stronger communities.

How the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation can help

Through its community and school awareness programs, the foundation has been spreading the word throughout Australia about what cervical cancer is, how to fight it, and most importantly, how to eliminate it.

Helpline

Cervical Health Info Line – a confidential service staffed by registered nurses and midwives
