McCabe Centre for Law and Cancer


The McCabe Centre for Law & Cancer is the only centre of its kind in the world advancing law to prevent cancer and to protect people affected by it.

Through world-leading research and training programs, the McCabe Centre empowers individuals, organisations and governments to use law as an effective tool to prevent cancer and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs), and to advance equitable health care for all people.

Founded in 2012, the McCabe Centre is a joint initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and Cancer Council based in Melbourne, Australia with Regional Coordinators in the Pacific, Asia and Africa.

The McCabe Centre is also a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Law and Non-Communicable Diseases, and the Knowledge Hub for legal challenges to implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
