Pursuing equity in access to cancer care and outcomes for all Victorians affected by cancer.
Closing the gap for all Victorians
Victoria has some of the best cancer outcomes in the world and is recognised as having a leading cancer system. However, these positives are not experienced equally by all Victorians, and that gap is widening.
People living outside metropolitan areas, from lower socio-economic groups, who are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, or from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, are more likely to be diagnosed with late stage or preventable cancer and have poorer outcomes.
