The ultraviolet radiation (UV) Index was estimated for the years 2005 to 2019 from the Metropolitan Area of Huancayo, Junín-Peru. For these, solar ultraviolet (UV) index from Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) and Tropospheric Ultraviolet and Visible (TUV) Radiation model were used to estimates UV index for 2020. Clear sky conditions were considered for measurements. The OMS categorization UV index levels were used to propose a 2020 calendar UV index. Results showed 239 days of 2020 (65,6%) with UV index levels higher than 11, which is categorized as extremely high. 95 (26.0%), 25 (6.73%), and 6 (1.80%) days for 2020 were categorized as UV index levels as very high, high, and medium, respectively. Likewise, was found that between 10:00 h and 15:00 h local time and Janeiro to April and September to December are presented higher UV index levels than 11. Thus, this information may be provided for the population in high quality enabling them to adopt suitable behaviors for health care, including skin cancer prevention.
