Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Action Plan 2020-2025, Mahere Tautapa Mate Pukupuku Taiohion 1 March
Tēnā koutou katoa,
We are excited to launch today and share with you the Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Action Plan 2020-2025, Mahere Tautapa Mate Pukupuku Taiohi. Click here to view the plan on our wesbite.
This is alongside the release of our latest snapshot of AYA cancer incidence and survival for the 2008 to 2017 period. If you would like even more detail about AYA cancer incidence and survival, the full 2008-2017 report can be downloaded here.
Kirsten Ballantine, our Data Projects Lead has also produced a webinar found on our website to provide a little more detail about the main findings.
Now that the plan is launched, we’ll be focussing on fulfilling our promise to our young people of achieving inclusiveness and equity in outcome by 2025. While this is certainly a big challenge to have set, we know that we can rely on the support from you and our network members across the country who share these same aspirations for our rangatahi.
Lastly, we would like to acknowledge the many clinicians, organisations and services who collaborated and provided input into this plan. A special mention goes to our AYA Consumer Advisory Group, an incredibly dedicated group of young people with lived experience of cancer. Please take time to watch this video that they put together following the news of the cancellation of the launch event scheduled to occur at the Ministry in Wellington today. It provides a heartfelt explanation of what they hope the new AYA cancer action plan will achieve.
Ngā mihi nui
