Policy Advisory Group

Expert advice on how we can more effectively meet the evidence needs of the policymaking community, specifically in developing and implementing policy actions to prevent cancer and non-communicable diseases.

The Policy Advisory Group advises us on:

  • the evidence needs of the policymaking community
  • processes to update, interpret and communicate the evidence for policy
  • outputs that are useful to the policy community
  • how to overcome barriers to policy implementation
  • how to stimulate wider implementation of more effective policies
  • developing relationships and alliances to enhance our impact

Launched in April 2015, the Policy Advisory Group comprises experts involved in policy from government, academia and civil society from Australia, Barbados, Canada, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, South Africa, the UK and the US. The Group also includes observers from the World Health Organization and the Union for International Cancer Control.
