The elimination of viral hepatitis has now been firmly put on the map. At the 69th World Health Assembly in Geneva, 194 governments adopted the World Health Organisations’s Global Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, which includes a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and C as a health issue in the next 13 years. In Australia, we are well placed to reach these goals but we need your support. Read More >

Don’t wait until it’s too late!01-02-2017
‘Dont Wait Until It’s Too Late’ Bowel Cancer Australia’s annual public awareness campaign is aimed at raising awareness that bowel cancer often develops without warning signs.

The tradition of having Australia Day as a national holiday on 26 January is a recent one. Not until 1935 did all the Australian states and territories use that name to mark that date. Not until 1994 did they begin to celebrate Australia Day consistently as a public holiday on that date.
There are a number of ceremonial aspects to many Australia Day events which have become both a tradition and a symbol of our national day. If you’re organising an Australia Day event these ceremonies can add meaning to your day. Australia Day ceremonies can include:
– citizenship ceremonies
– affirmation ceremonies
– the Australian flag and flag flying
– Australian national anthem
– Australia day ambassador program.
On Australia Day we recognise the unique status of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The National Australia Day Council (NADC) is committed to playing a part in the journey of Reconciliation by helping all Australians to move forward with a better understanding of our shared past, and importantly how this affects the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today and how we might build a better future together.
