Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation

The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) works in Australia, and through its Overseas Relief Fund in developing countries, to enhance and protect women's health.

The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation Health Promotion Charitable Trust works in Australia to eliminate cervical cancer.

Vision

ACCF’s vision is to protect and enhance women’s health by eliminating cervical cancer and enabling treatment for women with cervical cancer and related health issues, in Australia and developing countries.

Mission

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.
