Equity of outcomes

Improve cancer outcomes in communities that continue to have poorer outcomes to help everyone achieve their best health.

  • Take an equity-first lens to decision making, investment and monitoring. This means prioritising focus populations that have poorer cancer outcomes.
  • Recognise the individual, social, cultural and environmental factors that are important to prevent cancers and create supportive environments for healthier decisions and behaviours.
  • Empower and partner with focus populations – including through community- based organisations – to create supportive environments, targeted initiatives and services that are culturally safe and responsive, and meet community needs and preferences.
  • Ensure that the workforce reflects the diversity of the NSW population, and has the skills to deliver care that is culturally safe, particularly for Aboriginal people.
  • Build a strong voice for focus populations at the system level through co-design, leadership roles and governance structures.
  • Deliver effective, efficient and affordable treatments that improve cancer outcomes for all.
