Cancer Australia was established by the Australian Government in 2006 to benefit all Australians affected by cancer, and their families and carers.
Cancer Australia liaises with a wide range of groups, including those affected by cancer, key stakeholders and service providers with an interest in cancer control. The agency also focuses on populations who experience poorer health outcomes, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people living in rural and remote Australia.
As a national cancer control agency, Cancer Australia also makes recommendations to the Australian Government about cancer policy and priorities.
