About your environment

Since our establishment in 1936, Cancer Council Victoria has developed an international reputation for our innovative work in cancer research, prevention and support. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we play a leading role in reducing the impact of all cancers on all people.

The Prevention Division aims to prevent cancer for all Victorians. This is done through community interventions, mass media, advocacy, training and providing policy advice based on the best available evidence. This involves action to affect individual behaviours and the broader physical and legislative environment to reduce cancer risk. We prioritise health inequalities, especially in relation to Aboriginal people, and in culturally diverse and socio-economically disadvantaged communities.

The Prevention Division includes a broad range of cancer prevention and screening programs including the Achievement Program which aims to support workplaces, schools and early childhood services to improve their health promoting environments. It does this through assisting organisations to achieve set benchmarks in health promotion and by providing an integrated framework for prevention.
