The results are available at the IARC Global Cancer Observatory web site (http://gco.iarc.fr/). 

The online tool allows the production of tables and visual descriptions of the current cancer burden by country or region, and permits projections regarding future cancer burden over the next 20 years.

Childhood Cancer: IICC-3

The International Incidence of Childhood Cancer (IICC) is a collaborative project of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR) to disseminate the available data on the incidence of cancer in children around the world.

This is being achieved through the publication of a monograph, the third volume in the IICC series (IICC-3), co-sponsored by the Union of International Cancer Control (UICC). Data from 440 registries in five continents have been collected, validated, analyzed and evaluated. More than 300 registries provided high quality datasets and were selected for publication for IICC-3 after reigorous peer review by the IICC-3 Editors.  The online data has just been released on the occasion of the International Childhood Cancer Day last 15 February 2017.

The IICC-3 Editors acknowledge contribution of all the registries to the improvement of quality and comparability of global data on childhood cancer incidence.

IACR Constitution (2016)

The Association has updated its Constitution and Standing Rules.  These were ratified by the Board and submitted to the vote of the members, with the voting process completed in January 2016.  The 2016 Constitution conserves valued parts of the current Constitution while taking into consideration other suggestions to best meet the needs of our membership.
