COVID-19 and cancer


Many national and international colleges and peak bodies are developing guidance for the management of patients with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here you can find advice and information for Australians affected by cancer, and a repository of up-to-date, evidence-based resources and guidance for people affected by cancer, health professionals and researchers from Australia and International organisations in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Cancer Australia is committed to supporting culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities in Australia. For resources in-language, visit
