State of the Nation in Ovarian Cancer: Get involved


The Australian community is the lifeblood of the OCRF and our ability to continue as a leading funder of ovarian cancer research.

Your advocacy, fundraising and enthusiastic support ensures that the voices of women living with ovarian cancer are heard, and the stories of those who have gone are shared and remembered.

What we can achieve together

When we achieve the goals set out by this report, we will see the lives of women in Australia and around the world extended and saved.

  • Achieving a 50 per cent 5-year survival rate by 2025 will save 680 women between now and 2035
    Between now and 2035, nearly 14,000 Australian women are expected to die from ovarian cancer. Finding better and more personalised treatments and establishing a national approach to clinical best practice could save more than 680 of those women.
  • By doubling the current survival rate for the next generation of women, we will save 8000 women over a decade
    Developing an early detection test for the next generation of women has the potential to double the current survival rate and save the lives of more than 8,000 Australian women over a decade. Globally, an early detection test could save the lives of more than 1.3 million women. The establishment of an Australian Centre of Excellence in Early Detection will accelerate our ability to find that crucial early detection method.
