Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is a cancer charity working since 1969 to reduce the impact of cancer on people’s lives. The organization provides care and support services for cancer patients and their families, offers a range of cancer prevention programs to help people lessen their risk of getting cancer, funds scientific research into the causes and treatment of the disease, and campaigns for better health policy to protect the community and its future.

As part of the Irish government's current 10 year skin cancer prevention initiative, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland has selected the Solarmeter Model 6.5 UV Index Meter to demonstrate UV exposure outdoors, in order to promote public understanding of the UV index. Cancer Focus Northern Ireland joins a long list of similar organizations worldwide, including SunSmart Australia, who also utilize the Solarmeter Model 6.5 UV Index Model for similar public awareness purposes.
