Thanks to vital research helped funded by our incredible Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea hosts, Australia is on track to be the first country to eliminate cervical cancer by as early as 2028. Thank you for making this possible!

Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer affecting women worldwide, and in Australia, around 930 women are expected to be diagnosed this year alone.

This amazing breakthrough has come about thanks to advances in cancer research, successful cervical cancer screening programs and the HPV vaccine, all of which would not have been possible without your support.

Professor Karen Canfell has been one of the researchers helping lead the way in eliminating cervical cancer, hear more from her below:
