To the Editor: The National Cancer Control Initiative (NCCI) was established in 1997 jointly by the Department of Health and Ageing and The Cancer Council Australia to “provide timely advice, identify appropriate initiatives, and make specific recommendations to the Commonwealth Government and other key groups regarding the prevention, detection, treatment and palliation of cancer for all Australians”. It has been the only independent group dealing with all aspects of cancer nationally, and incorporating government, non-government, consumer and professional input.
