Welcome to the Australian Cancer Plan engagement hub!


We have created this engagement hub to keep our stakeholders, friends and all those interested in improving cancer outcomes up to date with the development of the first Australian Cancer Plan.


The Australian Cancer Plan is an historical step forward in cancer control. This 10-year plan for national action, with 2- and 5- year goals and visionary 10-year ambitions, will set a transformative agenda to accelerate world class cancer outcomes and improve the lives of all Australians affected by cancer.


Collaboration is a key guiding principle for the development of the Australian Cancer Plan. The development of the Australian Cancer Plan includes multiple opportunities for targeted and public consultation to support idea generation, prioritisation of issues, collaborative design of strategies, and review of the draft Australian Cancer Plan.


Progress to date has involved a Ministerial Roundtable, public consultation, review of cancer plans, health plans, and literature and data, and a number of targeted discussions with key stakeholder groups, including the Australian Cancer Plan Advisory Group and Australian Cancer Plan Jurisdictional Reference Group.


Cancer Australia sincerely thanks all those who have taken the time to contribute your experience and expertise through these activities to inform the development of the Australian Cancer Plan thus far.


The Australian Cancer Plan will be delivered to the Minister for Health and Aged Care in April 2023.
