The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation (ACCF) is dedicated to eliminating cervical cancer in Australia and in developing countries. It aims to do this by enabling public awareness programs, screening and related women's health clinics and by providing cervical cancer vaccine to women who do not have access to it. Simple and inexpensive, but otherwise unavailable treatments can often prevent great suffering.

In Australia.
ACCF has developed an awareness program for Australian school aged young women. The program provides a life changing opportunity to gain a real cultural experience of some of the world's most fascinating countries by offering practical hands-on assistance to ACCF's unique international aid project. Participants gain practical real-life skills to enhance their leadership, planning and team-work abilities.

And abroad
ACCF was incorporated in November 2007 and by the end of 2009 expect to have facilitated the delivery of more than $A2m worth of donated GardasilT vaccine to young women in Nepal and Bhutan. Nepal and Bhutan have been identified by the World Health Organisation as having among the highest rates of cervical cancer in the world. ACCF is actively working in six countries, Nepal, Bhutan, The Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and East Timor (Timor- Leste).
