Population ageing is likely to increase the burden of non-communicable diseases, such as cancer. Prevention, including health behaviour and screening programmes, can considerably reduce the morbidity and mortality risks of these diseases.

This project will investigate the theoretical and empirical demand for prevention among middle-aged and older people.
