Research roadmap for SunSmart research in South Africa

Towards a country free from adverse health impacts related to too much or too little solar UV radiation exposure

In order to advance the knowledge field of solar ultraviolet radiation and human health, and to provide empirical evidence and support systems for prevention of the associated diseases, a research roadmap was developed.

The roadmap was prepared using input given by participants of a symposium and roundtable discussion held on the 29 and 30 May 2012 in Pretoria and funded by the National Research Foundation.
