Object of BowelCare

1. Develop a Community Awareness of the nature of bowel cancer.
2. Earlier detection of potential or actual bowel cancer.

Our BowelCare Program previously known as Bowelscan commenced in Rotary District 9685 in 1990. Over the years, the Program has grown and now includes Rotary Districts 9710 and part of 9675, all of which use the Guaiac test kit.

Our Program is coordinated from a central head office. There are many other Rotary Districts in Australia which conducts the BowelCare Program under the name of Bowelscan and use the Guaiac test kit and Immunology test kits.
