As part of our ongoing commitment to improving cancer outcomes for all Victorians, we regularly prepare submissions in consultation with our members to influence policy and legislation at all levels of government.
The VCCC Alliance values the opportunity to contribute to the new Australian Cancer Plan 2023-33.
As a collective impact organisation of 10 academic, clinical and research organisations working actively with consumers, we applaud the premise set out for this plan and the need to strategically address multiple issues if we are to achieve world-class cancer outcomes for all Australians.
The VCCC Alliance is pleased to submit this document outlining four priority areas in cancer research, treatment and care.
The priorities consider the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as longer term needs to ensure Australia continues to support cutting edge research and achieve high survival rates for this devastating and costly disease.
