Addressing inequities in cancer care

Join the first of the 2023 FHS Aquero lecture series where a panel of cancer care experts will join President of the Union for International Cancer Control, Professor Jeff Dunn AO, to discuss this important topic.

The Faculty of Health Sciences’ Aquero Lecture Series honours the Catholic intellectual tradition by inspiring progressive dialogue towards principled leadership in a global health paradigm that is constantly changing.

The Pontifical Academy of Sciences recently held a two-day conference on global inequalities in cancer research and prevention, calling together high-level oncologists to promote more equitable outcomes for people worldwide.

In the Australian context, cancer remains the largest disease burden and a leading cause of death. More than one million people in Australia today have been directly impacted by the disease. And yet despite our success at lifting overall survival rates, incidence and mortality is still influenced by where we live and what we earn, and our cultural and ethnic status affects our chances of preventing, detecting and effectively treating the disease.

Join us to learn about the current and future landscape for best-practice cancer care and survivorship essentials.

When: 12.30pm-1.30pm (AEST) Tuesday 18 April
