Introducing our new strategic plan, a five-year roadmap that will advance the excellence and impact of our gynaecological cancer research.

In May 2023, a group of 24 ANZGOG members gathered to discuss the organisation’s values, purpose, and direction, resulting in a new vision, a new mission, and a new five-year strategic plan.

Our vision is: ‘Advancing research, saving lives’.

ANZGOG’s shared values are: Excellence, Impact, Equity, Collaboration, and Openness.

Together with representatives of our committees and working groups, we updated our mission:

To improve outcomes and quality of life for everyone with a lived experience of gynaecological cancer by conducting and promoting clinical trials and
multidisciplinary research.
