Skin cancer prevention strategy
The 'Skin Cancer Prevention Strategy and Action Plan (2011-21)' was launched in July 2011 and focuses on the prevention and early detection of skin cancer. Its aim is to reduce the incidence of, and deaths from, skin cancer in Northern Ireland. A cross-sectoral group has been established by the Public Health Agency to implement the action plan and work on this is ongoing. The duration of the strategy has been extended to allow for a review and decisions on future strategic direction.
A mid-term review of the strategy was published by the Department in October 2017.
