Now more than ever is the time to support Indigenous-led solutions to cancer care and control – VCCC Alliance

“Now more than ever is the time to support Indigenous-led solutions to cancer care and control.

Hosting the World Indigenous Cancer Conference is one of many activities the alliance includes as part of its agenda to strive for equity of cancer access for all, especially those who experience disadvantage and poorer outcomes.

Indigenous people know what’s required to ensure the health and well-being of themselves and their communities. That’s why our work is informed by our partners and Associate Professor Kalinda Griffiths, a proud Yawuru woman and our Research and Education Lead, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health.

This National Reconciliation Week, we recognize that there’s more work to be done to improve cancer outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. And we look forward to making progress together with Cancer Australia, Victorian Department of Health, Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO), and our many members and collaborators.

‘Health equity for this generation of Indigenous peoples cannot wait, we can’t fail the future generations of Indigenous populations.’ – Prof Gail Garvey, Professor of Indigenous Health Research, The University of Queensland.”
