Statistics show that one in three South Australians affected by cancer are from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. However, participation in cancer screening programs, such as the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program, is lower among those who speak a language other than English at home compared with English speakers (up to 34.1 per cent compared to up to 46.4 per cent).
