Blood Cancer Taskforce develops national plan

Australia icon

The Blood Cancer Taskforce has brought the Australian blood cancer community together to develop the first National Strategic Action Plan for Blood Cancer.

Development of the National Action Plan has involved consultation with clinicians, people with blood cancer, their carers and families, researchers, and a host of blood cancer experts.

Due for public launch in September, the National Action Plan is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reduce the impact of blood cancer and re-imagine the way treatment and care of blood cancer patients is planned and administered across Australia.

As the Leukaemia Foundation’s State of the Nation: Blood Cancer in Australia report, released in 2019, so clearly demonstrated; the economic and personal costs of not acting with urgency on blood cancer are too great to bear.

The Leukaemia Foundation looks forward to working together with the blood cancer community to implement the National Action Plan and achieve zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035.
