The Partnership synthesizes the best available Canadian and international evidence on effective healthy public policies for cancer prevention to inform development of new policy pack resources. Policy packs curate information from the Prevention Policies Directory and other key sources (e.g., economic analyses, statistics, etc.) to support evidence-informed decision-making related to cancer prevention policies.
