Establishment and Functions

The Anti-Cancer Council of Victoria was founded by an Act of Parliament in 1936 (refer to Anti-Cancer Council Act 1936 (No.4446). It is a statutory body supported largely by public donations and to some extant by project oriented government funding.

Its activities include:

Cancer research funding: The Council supports and coordinates cancer research in University departments, research institutes and hospitals.

Patient welfare. In some cases the Council also meets the costs of pharmaceuticals and of home nursing, equipment hire, food supplements and dressings etc.

Public education including informing people about the early warning signs of cancer.

Professional education. The Council provides lectures, films, literature and specialised library services.

Maintenance of the Victorian Cancer Registry - see below.

Constitution

The Council consists of thirty six members which includes:

Minister of Health;

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court;

Chancellor and the Vice Chancellor of the University of Melbourne;

Mayor of Melbourne;

Representatives from the Department of Health; and

Nominees of the Minister of Health to represent contribution to the funds of the Council.

The President and Vice President of the Council are elected at its annual meetings from among the members. The members of Committees (Executive, Finance, Medical and Scientific and Appeals Committees) are also appointed at its annual meetings.

Victorian Cancer Registry

From 1939, the Council began to maintain a register of cancer patients. This was done on the basis of recording medical details about individual patients whenever such information was brought to the notice of the Council (invariably from public hospitals).

However, it was not until the Cancer Reporting Act (No.9494) was passed in 1980 that it became compulsory to report incidence of career to the Anti-Cancer Council of Victoria. and public hospitals are now required to report on any patient who is suffering or commences to suffer from cancer.

Since 1939, the Council has been the sole registry for recording incidences of cancer in Victoria.
