Welcome to the UK Mesothelioma Alliance (UKMA)

Around 2,700 people in the UK are diagnosed with mesothelioma per year and the UKMA was established to bring together mesothelioma stakeholders as one voice to raise awareness of this asbestos-related cancer.

About UKMA

The UK Mesothelioma Alliance believes that:

  • Equitable access to treatment and care wherever patients are in the UK is crucial to improve outcomes
  • Raising awareness of mesothelioma and the dangers of asbestos is vital to both increase early diagnosis and reduce exposure to asbestos
