The Victorian Cancer Agency has been established to sustain and enhance Victoria’s excellent track record in cancer research. Funded by the Victorian Government, we invest in projects and initiatives that rapidly translate research into treatments and approaches that will improve clinical practice and care of cancer patients.

UPDATE: The 2018 Victorian Cancer Agency Funding Round for the following scheme is now open. Additional funding schemes will be made available in 2018.

Victorian Cancer Plan 2016-20

The Victorian Government has released the Victorian Cancer Plan 2016-20, providing a framework to improve cancer outcomes for all Victorians. This is the first plan to be developed under the Improving Cancer Outcomes Act, which requires the preparation of a cancer plan every four years.

The plan identifies priorities for actions that build on our achievements and respond to key challenges across five key priority action areas:

  • primary prevention
  • screening and early detection
  • treatment
  • wellbeing and support
  • research

Information about the schemes run in 2017 is available here.
