Welcome to the UK Mesothelioma Alliance (UKMA)
Around 2,500 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.
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
Virtual Action Mesothelioma Day 2020
Friday 3rd July
The UKMA is working on producing a national virtual event that can be used by the different regional groups who hold AMD events.
The national virtual event will include a mix of patient stories and clinical expert presentations.
We are currently finalising plans, looking at online options to host the event and working on resources to help raise awareness and make this yet another memorable AMD.
