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.
