In line with a commitment in the National Cancer Strategy 2017-2026, an annual report is published by the Department of Health setting out the progress achieved on the implementation of the 52 recommendations of the Strategy, and the degree to which the key performance indicators are being met.

The second Annual Report (covering the year to end December 2019) can be accessed at: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/dba7f9-national-cancer-strategy-implementation-report-2019/

The 2020 report will be published early in 2021.
