The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cancer framework provides guidance for individuals, communities, organisations and governments to address disparities and improve cancer outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The framework is designed to support national, jurisdictional, regional and local efforts to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cancer outcomes, including cancer plans and related policies, frameworks and action plans. It sets out priority areas for action with a flexible approach that allows for local context and needs.

The framework covers the full range of cancer control, including cancer prevention, screening and early detection, diagnosis and treatment, palliative care and survivorship; and the policy, systems, research and infrastructure that surround these service areas.
