ICRP’s aim is to promote international cancer research collaboration and avoid duplication. We aim to collaborate with other international organizations to improve outcomes for cancer patients.

Use the links below to find out more about other organizations working internationally:

Cancer prevention and cancer control:

  • Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) - Unites the cancer community, to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda by convening, capacity building and implementing a clear advocacy agenda.
