Our Vision

  • A world where all preventable causes of cancer are eliminated.

Our Mission

  • Entrench the precautionary principle, with use of the substitution principle to achieve least-toxic options.
  • Devote more funds to primary prevention (from the current 2%), and act on what we know prevents cancer;
  • Improve regulations and policies, to end environmental and workplace exposures to contributors to cancer; and
  • Support individuals — especially marginalized groups — communities, businesses and governments to reduce or eliminate cancer-causing exposures.

What We Do

  • Promote legislative, regulatory and policy reforms;
  • Run focused campaigns;
  • Conduct public education; and
