On 10 April 2018, the Government pledged £75 million towards clinical trials for prostate cancer which will focus on improving early diagnosis and survival rates as well as exploring options for different treatments for men affected by the disease.

In 2014, Public Health England ran a Be Clear on Cancer local pilot campaign focusing on ‘Prostate Cancer’ in London. This included posters (by the roadside and in barber shops), print, tailored public health messaging on local radio, street ambassadors and public relations.
