As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Cancer Australia is proud to release
This handbook provides evidence-based information for Indigenous health workers to start the conversation with Indigenous women and promote increased breast cancer awareness, prevention activities, screening, early detection and quality of life after diagnosis.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer, and the second most common cause of cancer death in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

The handbook is a valuable resource for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals.
