Mission This page is part of a national project to increase the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. The project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, and being delivered by Menzies School of Health Research and a consortium of partners. The Menzies project team is led by Professor Gail Garvey and project lead Jenny Brands. Team members include Georgina Smart, Boden Tighe, Brian Arley, Christine Long, Matt Plant and Anne-Marie Dewar. The project team also acknowledges the enormous contributions made to this project and to previous efforts to improve access to bowel screening, by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and other health professionals; state and territory health departments; Cancer Councils and other dedicated individuals and organisations.
Description People aged between 50 & 74 are sent a free National Bowel Cancer Screening Program screening test (NBCSP). Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in the NBCSP is low. Health professionals can help encourage more people to screen.
