Mesothelioma in Australia
The Mesothelioma in Australia publication provides statistics on the incidence and mortality of mesothelioma using data from a variety of sources. Mesothelioma is a fatal cancer that typically occurs 20 to 40 years after exposure to asbestos, although exposure does not always result in the disease. The disease is strongly linked to occupational exposure to asbestos.

The Australian Mesothelioma Registry
Safe Work Australia initiated and funded the Australian Mesothelioma Registry (AMR) in 2010. The AMR is currently co-funded by Safe Work Australia and Comcare. In addition to receiving notifications of new mesothelioma cases from all Australian cancer registries, the AMR surveys patients to gain a better understanding of the link between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma. The AMR’s management committee includes leading experts in asbestos-related diseases in Australia.
