Health Promotion


Health promotion is about empowering individuals and their communities to make informed, positive health decisions. It aims to improve people's health and allow them to have more control over their health.


At Action Cancer our two key health promotion messages are prevention and early detection.


Action Cancer's team of seven health promotion specialists work across all of Northern Ireland.

They provide a range of programmes which aim to raise awareness of the symptoms of breast, cervical, ovarian, testicular, prostate, bowel and skin cancer, and which highlight the importance of early detection of cancer.

The programmes also cover lifestyle factors such as smoking, diet, exercise and alcohol, and are delivered within a range of settings including schools, youth clubs, workplaces and community groups.
