Cancer Voices Australia is the independent, 100% volunteer voice of people affected by cancer, working to improve the cancer experience for Australians, their families and friends. We are active in the areas of diagnosis, information, treatment, research, support, care, survivorship and policy. To achieve this we work with decision-makers, ensuring the patient perspective is heard.
Cancer Voices Australia has lead the generic cancer consumer movement in Australia since 2000. The CVA networks share objectives and work together on national issues of interest and concern, with consumers working to help others affected by cancer. In 2014 CVA initiated the Australian Cancer Consumer Network (ACCN) of 30 cancer consumer organisations which will be officially launched on 26 November at Parliament House, Canberra.
Cancer Voices Australia’s structure is an alliance of cancer consumer organisations which works together on national issues for Australians affected by cancer. Those interested in joining the Cancer Voices Alliance should complete an Expression of Interest form. There is no fee.
