This study investigated the national patterns of incidence and death rates for cancers among Indigenous children with the aim of understanding and reducing the risk and impact of cancer in Indigenous youth.
The Menzies School of Health Research has worked in partnership with the Australian Paediatric Cancer Register (APCR) to conduct the study. The APCR is Australia's only national registry of childhood cancer, and is one of the few such registries in the world. The registry collects information on the incidence, stage, treatment and survival of all children diagnosed with cancer in Australia. No other registry in Australia collects information on the stage of disease and treatment of children with cancer.
