Show your support for a targeted national skin check program:

Skin Cancer is known as our ‘national cancer’.
2 in 3 of us are likely to do battle with it,
our rates are 12 times the global norm,
it costs our healthcare system over $1.4B a year
and kills an average of one Aussie ever 6 hrs.


Thankfully, over 98% of skin cancers can be successfully treated if detected early, which is exactly what our charity & this petition is all about.


In the last two decades since a formal skin cancer screening model was proposed – and deemed too expensive, advances in technology, talent and treatment pathways have significantly improved. Meaning… a more efficient and effective model is now a viable option for Government investment.


It’s called ‘Project Check Mate’, and early stage economic forecasting show a 30:1 return on investment for the healthcare system, not to mention the thousands of lives saved every year from a co-ordinated pop-up skin check program, targeting high risk communities (particularly in remote / regional Australia).


Non-profit charity Skin Check Champions has worked on a viable model for this program for over a decade, checking more than 10,000 Australian’s and gathering data and improving strategies to inform such an initiative. Their average rate of detection is up around 1 in 25. Which is far higher than any other model previously proposed.


The key is technology, talent and targeting. Together, with Federal and State Departments, we believe it’s time Australia back a ‘Targeted National Skin Check Program’ and start leading the world in the early detection of skin cancer, rather than skin cancer deaths.


Together, we can make skin cancer history.
