Australian Mesothelioma Registry
Australian Mesothelioma Registry (AMR)

What are our aims?

The AMR collects information about cases of mesothelioma to:

  • Better understand the relationship between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma.
  • Better understand the nature and levels of asbestos exposure that can result in mesothelioma.
  • Identify the circumstances under which groups of individuals are exposed to potentially dangerous levels of asbestos and to facilitate prevention.
  • Assist the development of policies to best deal with the asbestos still present in our environment.
  • Provide information to assist researchers in undertaking investigations with the aim of preventing mesothelioma in the future.
  • Identify other exposures that may be associated with mesothelioma.
  • Monitor and report on longitudinal or geographic trends.
  • Inform the development of community education and awareness strategies.
