National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP)

Bowel Cancer Australia is represented on the Australian Government's National Bowel Cancer Screening Program Advisory Group and Communications Working Group, focusing on the roll out of the Program and the development of a national communications framework.
 
In 2006, the then Minister for Health, the Hon Tony Abbott MP, announced funding for Bowel Cancer Australia to roll-out the first ever national bowel cancer screening campaign, It's Crunch Time™, which promoted participation by eligible Australians in Phase I and II of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.
