Cancer Australia is working with Menzies School of Health Research to develop a National Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework.
The Framework aims to define evidence based priorities that can be used to inform the national cancer
control agenda, and ultimately contribute to improved health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander people with cancer and their families.
To inform the Framework, Cancer Australia is aiming to capture a wide range of perspectives from
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have been affected by cancer, including their families and
community. We also want to hear from all people who have a role in cancer control, including Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander health workers, GPs, nurses, specialists, allied health practitioners and people
who work in screening, prevention and palliative care.
