Few economic evaluations have been conducted in Australia to measure the magnitude of the impact of skin cancer. There are large gaps in understanding the wider costs of skin cancer, particularly the impact of non-melanoma skin cancers. There is also little known about the indirect costs incurred by society, such as costs beyond the health sector.

This study is an economic cost analysis study which will investigate the societal costs of skin cancer in NSW. The study will also include a cost effectiveness analysis of the Cancer Institute’s skin cancer prevention activities in NSW.
