Today marks an important day in the global calendar – World GO (Gynaecological Oncology) Day – a joint effort from people with a lived experience of gynaecological cancers and medical professionals working together to improve outcomes and raise awareness.

Over the last 25 years in Australia, overall cancer survival rates have improved by 17%, whereas gynaecological cancer survival has only seen a 7% improvement. We see the evidence in advancing research to save lives. To achieve this in gynaecological cancer, more funding for research is needed.

Today is also ANZGOG WomenCan’s inaugural Giving Day, where the goal is to raise $50,000 to fund a new ANZGOG research project.

“Research costs money. Funding ensures that the best clinical trial ideas are brought to life. The only way to provide our community with access to government-funded drugs for gynaecological cancers, is to provide the clinical trial evidence that a drug works – and that costs.”

Prof Clare Scott AM, ANZGOG Chair
