International Alliances



Cancer Council Australia is a member of various international non-government coalitions. These organisations are committed to advancing knowledge and working with one another to improve cancer control on a local, national and global scale.

Cancer Council collaborates with and contributes to the International Union Against Cancer (UICC). The UICC is an association of more than than 770 member organisations in 155 countries, working to help the global health community accelerate the fight against cancer.

We also collaborate with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). As part of the World Health Organisation, IARC’s mission is to coordinate and conduct research on the causes of human cancer and the mechanisms of carcinogenesis, and to develop scientific strategies for cancer prevention and control.

Cancer Council also is a member the International Non Governmental Coalition Against Tobacco.
