Advocacy and Policy

"Preventing cancer is an urgent health issue that must be pushed to the top of everyone's policy agenda. The cost of inaction is simply too high. We all need to do our part
to protect our families, friends and neighbors from
this devastating disease."

— Marilyn Gentry, AICR President

AICR is involved in a number of projects to influence governments and key decision-makers to do all they can to achieve a health-promoting environment for all.
