The Australasian Association of Cancer Registries (AACR) is a collaborative body representing the eight Australian state and territory cancer registries, the New Zealand Cancer Registry and the AIHW. It was formed in 1982 to provide a formal mechanism for promoting uniformity of collection, classification and collation of cancer data. The AACR Executive Committee, comprising an AIHW representative and five state and territory cancer registry representatives, meets up to four times each year. The Committee advises the AIHW on the direction of the NCSCH work program, the development of publication topics and strategies, and provides technical advice on the operation of the NCSCH.

The objectives of the AACR are to:

  • analyse and report on the data in its national repository of cancer incidence and mortality statistics;
  • support research based on these data; and
  • develop and improve cancer statistics generally.
