National Cancer Equality Initiative

The Cancer Reform Strategy acknowledged that a lack of evidence and information presents a major challenge to the reduction of inequalities, and the improvement of treatment and care that people from all types of backgrounds receive.

To address this challenge a National Cancer Equality Initiative (NCEI) has been established. This brings together key stakeholders from the professions, voluntary sector,  universities and colleges, and equality groups to develop research proposals on cancer inequalities, test interventions and advise on the development of wider policy.
