This resource aims to raise awareness of lung cancer among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities.

The resource includes targeted information about what people can do to reduce their chances of getting lung cancer, things to look out for, and the importance of visiting a doctor or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Health Worker early if someone notices symptoms that could be lung cancer. It also includes real life stories from people who have experienced lung cancer including Aboriginal singer songwriter Archie Roach.

It is available in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through a national network of interactive kiosks which are located in Aboriginal health services and youth centres across Australia.
