Skin Cancer: Multicomponent Community-Wide Interventions

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends multicomponent, community-wide interventions to prevent skin cancer by increasing UV-protective behaviors. Multicomponent community-wide interventions to prevent skin cancer use combinations of individual-directed strategies, mass media campaigns, and environmental and policy changes across multiple settings within a defined geographic area (city, state, province, or country) in an integrated effort to influence UV-protective behaviors.
