Case study: Screening for people with a disability

Cancer Council Victoria and BreastScreen Victoria are working together to develop partnerships with disability advocacy organisations to improve access to cancer screening for people with disabilities. Cancer Council and BreastScreen provide organisations with funding and work with these organisations to develop and implement communication and/or peer education activities to improve knowledge of cancer screening programs.
