"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites and supports the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to ensure that cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda."
World Cancer Research Fund International (WCRF International) leads and unifies a global network of cancer charities dedicated to the prevention and control of cancer by means of healthy food and nutrition, physical activity and weight management.
In particular, WCRF International plays a leading role in directing and supporting the research activities of the WCRF global network.
Working with researchers, health professionals, policy makers and other health organisations throughout the world, we provide people with the information they need to make choices that can reduce their chances of developing cancer.
WCRF's vision is that the their global network helps people make choices that reduce their chances of developing cancer.
They were the first cancer charity to create awareness of the relationship between diet and cancer risk, to focus funding on research into diet and cancer prevention and to consolidate and interpret global research to create a practical message on cancer prevention.
In 2005 WCRF became full UICC member.
