About Cancer Council and ARU

The ARU joined forces with Cancer Council this year during The Sydney 7's, which took place on World Cancer Day.

About Cancer Council Australia

Our Mission: To realise our vision, Cancer Council Australia and its members undertake a broad range of activities.

Research
Cancer Councils are the leading independent funders of cancer research in Australia. In 2016, research grants through Cancer Councils totalled more than $65.5 million. Cancer Councils directly funded $43.4 million, with a further $22.1 million contributed by our research funding partners.

Information
We provide evidence-based, up-to-date information about all aspects of cancer to: 
- doctors and other health professionals - to help improve prevention, detection and treatment of cancer
- cancer patients and the general community - more than 50,000 Australians contact the Cancer Councils for information and advice each year, through Cancer Council 13 11 20.

Prevention
Our early detection and prevention programs aim to help people quit smoking, protect themselves from the sun, eat healthier foods and engage in physical activity to reduce the risk of cancer.

Patient support
Cancer Councils coordinate a network of cancer support groups, services and programs to help improve the quality of life of cancer patients, people living with cancer, their families and carers.

Treatment
Our Australia-wide network of health professionals, the Clinical Guidelines Network (CGN) develops guidelines to provide the best evidence based treatment and care for cancer patients. We also work closely with our clinical partner, the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia , to ensure recommendations on cancer care incorporate the advice of experienced cancer specialists across the full range of medical and scientific disciplines.

Advocacy
Cancer Council Australia advises government on the needs of our stakeholders and provides an independent voice for improved cancer control policy based on the evidence.

Cancer Council Australia also publishes the National Cancer Prevention Policy which advocates for a concerted and comprehensive national approach to the prevention of cancer. The policy makes specific recommendations for national action by governments and non-government organisations, including programs and strategies to reduce the incidence of cancer.
