Campaign launch

The campaign launch in 2011 was covered on BBC Breakfast, in the Metro, the Times, Irish Times, British Medical Journal, and 40 special interest magazines and websites. More than 50 organisations ranging from Mumsnet and Which? to Ovarian Cancer Action voiced their support for the campaign. Since then, thousands of people have asked for evidence on everything from fertility treatments and election manifestos to pet food nutrition and health apps. We’re grateful for the support the campaign receives from The Wellcome Trust.
