The Annual Report outlines important milestones and achievements by Cancer Australia during 2016-17 as we work to minimise the impact of cancer, address disparities, and improve the health outcomes of people affected by cancer in Australia by providing national leadership in cancer control.
The Annual Report sets out the outcomes achieved in the key priority areas: provide leadership in national cancer control and promote effective cancer care; fund priority research and strengthen national data capacity; and promote cancer awareness and provide information about cancer to the community.
The Annual Report also provides information on Cancer Australia’s management and accountability arrangements and its financial results.
The Annual Report has been prepared in accordance with section 46 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013, the requirements for non-corporate Commonwealth entities’ annual reports approved by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit under sections 63 (2) and 70(2) of the Public Service Act 1999 and the Cancer Australia Act 2006.
Cancer Australia continues to impact on the care, support and outcomes of people affected by cancer, and we thank you for your ongoing support of our work.
