Internships at Ovarian Cancer Australia

Background: Ovarian Cancer Australia is the peak national body for ovarian cancer. It is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2001 by people who had been affected by ovarian cancer, either themselves or through someone they loved.

Our vision is to save lives and ensure that no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone.

We work to ensure that:

  • Women with ovarian cancer have a strong voice.
  • Every Australian knows the symptoms and risks of ovarian cancer.
  • All women with ovarian cancer have access to best practice diagnosis, treatment, information and support.
  • A vibrant and growing national ovarian cancer research effort in Australia informs practice and translates into improved quality of life and survival for women.

Our values are Optimism, Community and Accountability.
