Resources for people with cancer

Cancer Australia is committed to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to provide relevant information about cancer awareness, early detection and treatment. We have developed a range of resources to provide culturally appropriate and targeted information to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people affected by cancer and their families. All resources have been developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and organisations.

Study of breast cancer screening characteristics and breast cancer survival

This study provides a national overview of breast cancer screening and survival in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women of Australia. Cancer Australia (formerly National Breast and Ovarian Cancer Centre*) undertook this study in response to the clear evidence of disadvantage among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples compared with other Australians, and the lack of high quality, national breast cancer data available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
