This booklet highlights the activities of Aboriginal Health Workers, Aboriginal community controlled health services and mainstream health services to reduce the impact of cancer in Aboriginal communities in New South Wales.

The stories feature innovative and locally designed programs that emphasise the importance and effectiveness of culturally appropriate cancer support and screening services for Aboriginal people. It includes the experiences of Aboriginal people in developing these initiatives, as well as some practical solutions for Aboriginal people, health professionals and organisations wanting to improve or set up cancer support services within their own community.
