    Relationships with Cancer Councils

    Cancer Council Australia commenced in 1961 as the Australian Cancer Society, when six state Cancer Councils, which at that time all varied in name and brand, agreed to establish a federal body to promote cancer control at the national level.
    Cancer organisations in the ACT and the Northern Territory were subsequently formed and signed on as members of the society.

    Each State Cancer Council is an independently operated company limited by guarantee.

    Relationships with international cancer organisations

    Cancer Council SA is a member of The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). UICC members share a passion to eliminate cancer as a life-threatening disease for future generations. Current UICC membership comprises more than 760 member organisations in 155 countries and continues to grow. Our network brings together cancer leagues and societies, research institutes, treatment centres, hospitals, scientific and professional societies, ministries of health, public health agencies and patient support organisations to shape cancer control on a global scale.

    Organisations that join UICC become part of an international movement to place cancer at the top of the global health agenda.
