Our Collaborators

The institute also receives assistance from International organizations such as:

Widely known as the world’s “Atoms for Peace” organization within the United Nations family, the IAEA is the international centre for cooperation in the nuclear field. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear technologies.

UICC’s rapidly increasing membership base of over 1000 organisations in more than 160 countries, represents the world’s major cancer societies, ministries of health and patient groups and includes influential policy makers, researchers and experts in cancer prevention and control. UICC also boasts more than 50 strategic partners.

Our goal is to build a better, healthier future for people all over the world. Working through offices in more than 150 countries, WHO staff work side by side with governments and other partners to ensure the highest attainable level of health for all people.
Together we strive to combat diseases – infectious diseases like influenza and HIV and noncommunicable ones like cancer and heart disease. We help mothers and children survive and thrive so they can look forward to a healthy old age. We ensure the safety of the air people breathe, the food they eat, the water they drink – and the medicines and vaccines they need.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization.
IARC coordinates and conducts both epidemiological and laboratory research into the causes of human cancer. The Agency’s work has four main objectives:

  • Monitoring global cancer occurrence
  • Identifying the causes of cancer
  • Elucidation of mechanisms of carcinogenesis
  • Developing scientific strategies for cancer control

The International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR) is an international not-for-profit, non-governmental organization established to address a neglected global health problem – the ever increasing burden of cancer in developing countries.
INCTR is dedicated to helping to build capacity for cancer prevention, treatment (including palliative care) and research and to improve access to needed care in order to lessen the suffering and limit the number of lives lost from cancer in developing countries.

There are many beneficial ways to contribute to cancer research or to help the cancer cause. Some people choose to give money to NCI. Although we do not solicit funds or participate in fundraising activities, NCI can receive donations through the Gift Fund or the Breast Cancer Research Stamp.

Some people take action in other ways to make a difference in cancer. For example they may volunteer, donate tissue, or participate in a research study.

A global health leader situated at Columbia University, ICAP has worked since 2003 with one central goal: to improve the health of families and communities.

With over 40,000 students and more than 9,000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is the largest institution of research and education in Denmark. The purpose of the University – to quote the University Statute – is to ’conduct research and provide further education to the highest academic level’.

Following the IAHPC List of Medicines for Palliative Care in 2006 and a request from WHO, IAHPC submitted an application of medications for palliative care to be reviewed by the WHO Expert Committee on the Selection and Use of Essential Medicines, which met in Geneva in April 2013. In addition, IAHPC also submitted along with others, a request to move the palliative care list out of the oncology section.
