Leading Change: Advocacy

Ovarian Cancer Australia has become the leading national body, taking action for Australians affected by ovarian cancer.

We take action to:

1) Reduce variation in care, leading to improved survival and quality of life

2) Improve timely access to effective and affordable treatments and

3) Provide access to patient and family-centred care and support

Underpinning these objectives is the work of the National Action Plan (NAP). The NAP sets out a roadmap to reduce the incidence, increase the survival rate and improve the quality of life of people diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Australia. 

The NAP was developed over many months in partnership with women living with ovarian cancer, key organisations and leaders in ovarian cancer including researchers, policy makers and ovarian cancer health professionals and it is this spirit of collaboration that has been able to guide the work of OCA and our advocacy agenda.
