Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation

Since 2007, the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) is the only consumer-focused cancer charity in Australia dedicated exclusively to prevent cervical cancer and to support all individuals impacted by a cancer in cervix and cervical abnormalities.

Vision and mission

ACCF’s vision is simple, to eliminate cervical cancer.

The charitable mission of ACCF is to:

  • Facilitate and implement programs designed to provide awareness about vaccination, screening and treatments for cervical cancer, cervical abnormalities and HPV-related cancers.
  • Enable and encourage effective changes which produce life-saving results to improve women’s health outcomes and contribute to empowering women, reducing their poverty and disadvantage, and ultimately develop stronger communities.
  • Work and partner with like-minded governments, organisations and individuals.

How the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation can help

As part of their commitment, ACCF provide awareness and education for high-school students, women, people with a cervix, and families affected by cervical cancer. Through their programs and campaigns, they are helping girls, women and people with a cervix access the education and protection they need for their cervical health. ACCF's work is part of a collaborative effort to eliminate cervical cancer in Australia by 2035.
