SARRAH Submission - Australian Cancer Plan 2023-2033

SARRAH strongly supports the overarching purpose of the proposed Plan and Cancer Australia’s assessment that “To achieve world-class cancer outcomes for all Australians, we need national action to address issues that contribute to differences in cancer incidence, and that lead to variation in cancer outcomes and experience. And we need a way of sharing, learning from and scaling-up activities that are making a difference.”

We strongly support the focus and priority Cancer Australia is placing on addressing inequitable health risk and outcomes, and the effort to highlight:
“A person’s risk of cancer, their experiences during diagnosis and treatment, and their survival are influenced by where they live, their background and personal circumstances, and the type of cancer they have. Such differences and variation are unacceptable".
