Hear Me Now. The uncomfortable reality of prostate cancer in black African-Caribbean men

Black African Caribbean men have a 3-fold higher risk of developing prostate cancer and are more likely to present with prostate cancer at an earlier age (approximately 5 years younger than white British men) and have a higher death rate.  Authored by Dr Rose Thompso CE of BME Cancer Communities (BMECC), the Hear Me Now reports emphasised the fact that prostate cancer in black men is a clear health inequality.

 

 

 

Hear Me Now. One Year On

The follow-up report entitled Hear Me Now: One Year On, presented compelling evidence to demonstrate that a concerted effort was needed to ensure that those at higher risk of prostate cancer can be identified early and treated effectively. This call for action led to the national Hear Me Now (HMN) Campaign following a series of recommendations for national and local government.
