World Cancer Research Fund International is the world’s leading authority on cancer prevention research related to diet, weight and physical activity.

We are a not-for-profit association that leads & unifies a network of cancer prevention charities with a global reach.

The registered charities in our network comprise the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), World Cancer Research Fund UK, World Cancer Research Fund Netherlands, and World Cancer Research Fund Hong Kong.

By working together we achieve much more than working alone. We share evidence, pool expertise and services; saving money and avoiding duplication.

World Cancer Research Fund International’s ground-breaking research is used to produce the evidence-based Cancer Prevention Recommendations that help saves lives around the world. We also lead on global policy work to advocate for better public health policies to help prevent cancer.
