Prevention and screening

Areas of Investment - Prevention and Screening

At the Alberta Cancer Foundation we know that that best approach to reducing the impact of cancer is to catch it early or prevent it from ever happening. Investment in this area will enhance existing knowledge about prevention and screening tactics for all the different types of cancers. As it stands there are over 200 cancers, each as individual as a fingerprint and more information is needed to implement effective prevention and screening programs. Progress is already being made to:

  • Understand why some people develop cancer and others do not
  • Detect cancer earlier through province wide screening programs
