Under the Improving Cancer Outcomes Act 2014, the Victorian Government is committed to developing a state-wide cancer plan every four years.
Cancer impacts many Victorians and our survival rates are among the best in the world, with more people now living with or beyond cancer. However, outcomes are not equal for all cancers and some people. To improve cancer outcomes, we need to work together to continually improve our world-leading cancer care system and adopt long-term approaches to these complex challenges.
The development of the Victorian cancer plan 2020-2024 provides an opportunity for Victorians to have a say on how to improve cancer outcomes.
A summary of the consultation and the contributions received is available on the Victorian cancer plan page on the health.vic website.
The online consultation period has now closed. Thank you for your contribution.
Update 16 September 2020:
The Victorian cancer plan 2020-2024: improving cancer outcomes for all Victorians
was released on 16 September 2020. This plan identifies priorities to
prevent cancer, increase survival, improve participation in cancer
screening and the experience of the cancer treatment and care system,
and achieve equitable outcomes for all Victorians with cancer.
