The Victorian cancer plan 2016–20 provides a framework to improve cancer outcomes for all Victorians.

The Victorian cancer plan 2020-2024

The Victorian cancer plan 2020-2024 will identify priorities to prevent cancer, increase survival, improve the experience of the cancer treatment and care system, and achieve equitable outcomes for all Victorians.

The Department of Health and Human Services is conducting a series of consultations to help inform the development of the Victorian cancer plan 2020-2024. 

The development of the cancer plan provides an opportunity for Victorians to have a say on how to improve cancer outcomes. All interested stakeholders are encouraged to participate in a consultation workshop.

As places are limited, please register your attendance through Eventbrite at the individual links provided through the Engage Victoria platform

If you are unable to attend a workshop in person, online consultation will be available through the Engage Victoria platform between 7 October and 4 November 2019.
