Alliance for Cancer Prevention
Formed in 2009, the Alliance is a multi-stakeholder group which includes representatives from; NGOs, environmental and occupational health organisations, trade unions, public health advocates and civil society groups, to work together on cancer prevention. The Alliance campaigns for the acceptance of the environmental and occupational risk factors for cancer and aims to challenge the existing perception of control and treatment of cancer being the best way forward and get equal recognition for primary prevention. It works to ensure that the cancer establishment acknowledges the environmental and occupational risk factors for preventable cancers.
Alliance members campaign on issues independently and join together to work collectively and strategically to identify the interconnection between the environmental, occupational, and social factors and the combined exposures.
The Alliance is a campaign partner of the EDC-Free campaign and supports HEAL’s work proactively, mainly via its social media work.
