Invest in cancer prevention programs


WA has a proud history of leading the way on prevention programs for cancer and other chronic diseases – but delivering these campaigns state-wide requires adequate funding.

One in three cancer diagnoses can be prevented by simple lifestyle choices, such as quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, maintaining a healthy weight, being physically active, being SunSmart, limiting red and processed meats, and eating more fruit and vegetables.

We call on the next state government to maintain and build upon their current investment in prevention efforts focused on tobacco, obesity, skin cancer and alcohol to ensure the burden and cost of cancer and other chronic diseases is reduced for WA’s current and future generations.
