As a World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre, La Sécurité Solaire operates with private and public funds under the auspices of a multi-disciplinary scientific council.

Following United Nations recommandations, La Sécurité Solaire has developed a measure set-up (detectors network) and a UV-forecast program. From the intensity of UV-Rays in all seasons to the things-to-know about sun protection, the association informs the population on a national level through major TV channels (France Television, TF1), radio (Radio France) and numeros regional and national newspapers. A 2000 IFOP survey revealed that its action is acknowledge by 85% of french people.

La Sécurité Solaire develops Living with the Sun, an education program for 4 to 13-year-old schoolchildren.
