In January this year, Cancer Council Queensland unveiled the organisation’s 2016-2020 Strategic Priorities, under the theme All Queenslanders, all cancers.
These priorities provide a five-year vision for community-based cancer control in Queensland, empowering us to build community capacity and strengthen our collaborative efforts to eliminate cancer as a life-threatening disease for future generations.
As you know, cancer remains the greatest burden of disease in Queensland, with significant impacts for individuals, families, the community, and the health-care system.
Over recent decades we have witnessed significant progress, but much more work needs to be done.
The renewal of our strategic priorities from 2016 to 2020 responds to the need for us to provide the Queensland community with sustainable, efficient, and effective research, programs, and services over the long-term.
We are committed to best-practice community-based cancer control, to prevent cancer from occurring and improve quality of life and survival outcomes for Queenslanders affected by the disease.
These priorities are part of our collective effort to create a healthier future for all in our community.
As ever, you remain key to our work, through your abiding commitment as a volunteer. With thanks to your vital investment in our mission, we continue to fund world-leading cancer research and services in Queensland.
Thank you once again for sharing our vision
