Cancer Council australia
The Australian Cancer Council works across every area of every cancer, from research to prevention and support. Helping people from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and survivorship.
Over its 54-year history, Cancer Council Australia has transformed from a small secretariat to a strong federal body that has become Australia’s peak independent authority on cancer control. Although independent of government, Cancer Council Australia is a source of nonpartisan, evidence-based advice for government through a number of other forums. Cancer Council Australia seeks to engage all Australians in our work to reduce the impact of cancer in Australia through advocacy, research, education and support.

Screening to prevent cervical cancer: guidelines for the management of asymptomatic women with screen-detected abnormalities
Cancer Australia was established by the Australian Government in 2006 to benefit all Australians affected by cancer, and their families and carers. Cancer Australia aims to reduce the impact of cancer, address disparities and improve outcomes for people affected by cancer by leading and coordinating national, evidence-based interventions across the continuum of care.
Cancer Australia works collaboratively and 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 the lead national cancer control agency, Cancer Australia also makes recommendations to the Australian Government about cancer policy and priorities.

national cervical cancer prevention program
The National Cervical Cancer Prevention Program involves both vaccination to prevent disease and screening to prevent progression of disease. Recently the National cervical screening program saw the introduction of primary screening for oncogenic human papilloma virus infection rather than cervical cytology.
