The ACHSC seeks to fulfil its mission of empowering young people to make a meaningful contribution towards realising a world free of cancer through its initiatives, which provide opportunities for high school and university students to:

  • Learn about the biology and impact of cancer as disease that affects real people;
  • Use their knowledge of cancer to minimise their own individual risk of developing cancer;
  • Use their knowledge of cancer to contribute to the fight against cancer.

ACHSC currently runs two initiatives:

  1. High School Cancer Challenge (HSCC)
  2. High School Cancer Masterclasses (HSCM)

In 2019, ACHSC will be introducing a third initiative targeted at university students: University Cancer Case Competition (UCCC).
