Prevention is the foundation of public health policy and central to protecting and improving people’s health and well-being. Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan is a key opportunity to put prevention at the heart of the EU’s health agenda. SHAAP and Eurocare contributed to the plan as members of EPHA.
John D Rooney & Eric Carlin argue in a BMJ Open editorial that the rest of the UK should follow Scotland's lead on minimum unit pricing.
