Welcome to PASS
We are the Public Access to SunScreens (PASS) Coalition, an alliance of public health organizations, physician groups, sunscreen manufacturers, and concerned citizens working together toward a shared purpose: to help prevent skin cancer and improve public health by ensuring Americans have access to safe and effective sunscreens and evidence-based education on sun-safe practices. Skin cancer and other sun-related conditions are serious health issues impacting millions of Americans. In fact, one person dies from melanoma almost every hour, and 9,500 individuals are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. Skin cancer, however, is one of the most preventable forms of cancer – but that isn’t possible if Americans don’t have access to the best possible protection.
