The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) invites eligible people starting at age 50 and continuing to age 74 (without symptoms) to screen for bowel cancer using a free, simple test at home.
Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world. Around one in 23 Australians will develop bowel cancer during their lifetime.
The NBCSP aims to continue to reduce deaths from bowel cancer through early detection of the disease.
A number of health promotion strategies areused to help with the promotion of the program and the prevention & early detection of bowel cancer. These include:
- The Health Check Program
- Presentations (community, men's, Health Professional, Indigenous and CALD presentations available)
- Workplace initiatives
