The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends multicomponent community-wide interventions to prevent skin cancer by increasing sun-protective behaviors. These interventions combine strategies directed by individuals, mass media campaigns, and environmental and policy changes. CPSTF found that the interventions increase sunscreen use and may reduce sunburns.
