Release of Cancer Australia’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework
Cancer Australia is pleased to announce the release of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework.
Australians have among the best cancer survival rates in the world, yet Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to experience significant disparities in cancer outcomes when compared with non-Indigenous Australians. The Indigenous to non-Indigenous cancer mortality gap is likely to continue to grow.
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Framework was developed by Cancer Australia to identify national priorities for the many communities, organisations and governments whose combined efforts are required to address the disparities and improve cancer outcomes for Indigenous Australians.
Cancer Australia’s Framework provides high-level guidance to all sectors to harness, maximise and leverage collaborative arrangements to improve cancer outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
