HSANZ were pleased to be a signatory to the National Strategic Action Plan for Blood Cancer coordinated by the Leukaemia Foundation.

Blood cancers are one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Australia today and one of the biggest causes of cancer death.

The National Strategic Action Plan for Blood Cancer is a blueprint to coordinate and accelerate national efforts to improve survival and quality of life for people diagnosed with blood cancer and to support their carers and families.

It identifies four major priorities:

  • Empower patients and their families
  • Accelerate research
  • Enable access to novel and specialised therapies
  • Achieve best practice.

The National Action Plan was commissioned by the Australian Government and launched by the health Minister in September 2020.
