Policy Report

WCRF/AICR’s Policy and Action for Cancer Prevention provides evidence-based recommendations to key groups in society on how to help people make healthier choices to reduce their chances of developing cancer.

WCRF/AICR’s Second Expert Report sets out personal recommendations for people as well as goals for the population as a whole. Setting these targets was a vital first step. Equally important is understanding how to achieve them. This is the reason we published an evidence-based Policy Report.
