Description of charity's activities and outcomes
The Cervical Cancer Awareness Program for Schools (CCAPS) continued to grow with school presentations being made across Australia. There are 58 trained volunteer presenters and coordinators. The relationship with Hyundais philanthropic arm, Hyundai Help for Kids continues to enable ACCF to employ dedicated Coordinators to continue building the program. Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation Real Life Challenge Program continues with planning for a group of students and teachers from Somerville House to Kiribati. They saw first-hand ACCFs program in this remote Pacific Island, met local school students, government VIPs and worked on a painting project at a local clinic and are preparing for their next adventure in 2018. The Community Education Program also continues to grow as the CCAPS coordinators look after this program. The program continues to engage with local health and womens groups, service clubs such as Rotary and Zonta groups and other interest groups such as universities around Australia. In 2017 ACCF undertook the Hearts for Health VolunTOURing Challenge to Nepal. ACCF established a partnership with Womens Health Queensland Wide to promote and launch the Cervical Health Information Line in a 12 month pilot period. This is the first initiative of ACCFs CerviCAN Support Program, created to assist and support women and their families, throughout Australia, with advice and information about cervical cancer and cervical screening. This service is available to women between the ages of 18 to 69 living in Queensland. ACCF has agreed to extend this partnership into the 2017/2018 financial year with a view to developing and expanding the service to encompass an Australia-wide audience.ACCF has been working closely with the Cervical Screening Renewal Taskforce in order to be in alignment with key messages regarding the cervical screening changes. National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week was held in November again. The week consisted of various events held in Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne. ACCF is continuing our work with Jana Pittman as a Celebrity Ambassador. Jana is currently studying medicine and is passionate about gynaecological issues so approached ACCF to offer her profile and support.ACCF continues as an Information Partner for HealthDirect a national, government-owned, not-for-profit organization that offers information and advice on health-related conditions including cervical cancer. A Comfort Checklist has proven to be successful for patients as a guide for what women should expect when going for a Pap test.
