Join us in the fight against cancer. We work hard to make changes in policy - changes that result in real change and possibly saved lives.
Since the workplace smoking ban in 2004, Ireland has led European countries in adopting anti-smoking legislation. However, despite some initial headway, the smoking rate may now be back at pre-2004 levels. Find out how you can get involved in our anti-smoking efforts by visiting our section on Tobacco Advocacy.
In January 2013 we published our extensive "Women and Smoking - Time to Face the Crisis report". Download a PDF version of this report here (PDF, 1.45MB).
Cancer screening saves lives and catches cancer early. The availability of high-quality population-based screening is one of the strongest weapons we can use to reduce the high death rate from
cancer in Ireland. Find out how you can get involved in making screening available to everyone by visiting our section on Screening Advocacy.
Sunbeds are currently unregulated in Ireland. This means that anyone, including under-18s and people with fair skin, can use sunbeds without any supervision or the appropriate warnings. Find out how you can get involved in bringing sunbed regulation to Ireland by visiting our section on Sunbed Advocacy.
