ARPANSA and Cancer Council Victoria sign a MOU

13 October 2016

ARPANSA and Cancer Council Victoria (CCV) yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding to improve health outcomes from radiation exposure with a focus on solar ultraviolet radiation.

The collaboration between ARPANSA and CCV has been ongoing since the 1980s with shared knowledge and collaborative research being undertaken to improve our understanding of sun protection behaviour and to raise awareness of ultraviolet radiation exposure.

The understanding of radiation protection is an international issue and ARPANSA and CCV collaborate with the World Health Organisation on the INTERSUN project.

Be SunSmart in Australia and download the SunSmart app; think UV not heat.
