Put Prevention First

Prioritise the primary prevention of breast cancer

What are we calling for?

We’re calling on the Government to commit to spending 10% of healthcare funding on prevention to reduce breast cancer incidence and help more people never have to experience the suffering and devastation of a breast cancer diagnosis 

Why you should support this campaign?

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK  incidence rates have doubled in the past 50 years. 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime, yet at least 1 in 4 breast cancer cases are preventable. Despite huge progress in diagnosis and treatment, too little is being done to prevent breast cancer before it starts. Today we spend less than 5% of healthcare funding on prevention. If we are serious about preventing diseases such as breast cancer this must change. 

Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on people affected by breast cancer. Around 11,000 people in the UK are estimated to have missed a breast cancer diagnosis with 40,000 fewer patients starting cancer treatment in 2020, compared to the previous year. To make matters worse, the UK is forecast to lose up to £7.8 billion of investment in medical research by 2027. The future of research is at risk so investing in prevention is more important than ever!  

It’s time to put prevention first to reduce the number of people being diagnosed with breast cancer. The government has pledged to put prevention at the heart of the public health agenda. Join us in asking government to deliver on their promise!
