Abstract, Results, first sentence, which previously read:

“The results were based on a reduction of 9000 skin cancer cases, saving €47 million of which €29 million were derived from sunburn reductions and €16 million from reductions in sunbed use.”

should have read:

“The results were based on a reduction of 9000 skin cancer cases, saving €29 million of which €13 million were derived from sunburn reductions and €16 million from reductions in sunbed use.”

Section 1 Introduction, third paragraph, third sentence, which previously read:

“The skin cancer projections (2007–2040) also showed reductions in the number of skin cancer cases of more than 30,000 and 14,000 as a result of reductions in sunbed use and sunburn, respectively, compared with no change in behavior [12, 13].”

should have read:

“The skin cancer projections (2007–2040) also showed reductions in the number of skin cancer cases of 16,000 and 14,000 as a result of reductions in sunbed use and sunburn, respectively, compared with no change in behavior [12, 13].”

Section 3 Results, first paragraph, third sentence, which previously read:

“In total, the campaign is estimated to have avoided more than 9000 cases of skin cancer in the conservative scenario.”

should have read:

“In total, the campaign is estimated to have avoided nearly 9000 cases of skin cancer in the conservative scenario.”

Section 3 Results, first paragraph, fifth sentence, which previously read:

“Skin cancer reductions due to reductions in sunburn have cost savings of almost €13 million, sunbed use €34 million, and combined €47 million.”

should have read:

“Skin cancer reductions due to reductions in sunburn have cost savings of almost €13 million, sunbed use €16 million, and combined €29 million.”

The article has now been updated to correct the errors.
