About the organisation

Organisation Name : Cancer Council Victoria

Since our establishment in 1936, Cancer Council Victoria has developed an international reputation for our innovative work in cancer research, prevention and support. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we play a leading role in reducing the impact of all cancers on all people.

The Prevention Division aims to reduce the risk of cancer in the Victorian population through social marketing, advocacy, professional training and providing policy advice based on the best available evidence. This involves action to affect individual behaviours and the broader physical and legislative environment to support health and wellbeing.

This is achieved through a range of programs including SunSmart; Screening, Early Detection & Immunisation, Achievement Program, LiveLighter, Rethink Sugary Drink, Obesity Policy Coalition, and Quit Victoria.

The Heritage Project is responsible for documenting Cancer Council Victoria’s extensive history and organising its archive for use in current cancer control campaigns. It therefore sits in the Prevention Team, which is responsible for running Cancer Council Victoria’s many cancer control campaigns, most famously SunSmart and QUIT.
