Our partnerships

We work collaboratively with organisations across the world to develop policies on cancer prevention and non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

This includes engaging with civil society and the research community to encourage and support the development of effective international policies and processes to reduce the prevalence of NCDs such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

Organisations we are currently collaborating with include:

We are in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO) since 2016. This means that we work collaboratively with WHO to help people to reduce their risk of developing non-communicable disease, including cancer. We are seen as a trusted advisor to the WHO, allowing us to influence public health policy at the highest level.

UICC is a membership organisation that unites the global cancer community to help accelerate the fight against cancer.

We are a Vanguard partner in UICC’s Together for Action campaign that works to ensure governments take tangible actions in tackling cancer issues.

We are members of the UICC Cancer Prevention Network, a platform to exchange knowledge on cancer prevention and contribute to the International Cancer Control Partnership portal.

We also raise awareness about cancer prevention via World Cancer Day, organised by UICC.

NCD Alliance unites a network of over 2,000 civil society organisations globally and works to combat the NCD epidemic by putting health at the centre of all policies.

We work closely with NCD Alliance in our advocacy work supporting global action on nutrition, NCDs and obesity. We have worked with NCD Alliance to ensure the development and implementation of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) global policy architecture for NCDs – the international processes governing the approach to NCDs.

The World Obesity Federation is a global community of organisations dedicated to solving the problems of obesity.

One of World Obesity’s initiatives is INFORMAS (International Network for Food and Obesity/NCDs Research, Monitoring and Action support), a global network that aims to monitor, benchmark and support actions to create healthy food environments. It has also developed a Government Healthy Food Environment Policy Index (Food-EPI) to assess the extent of government policy implementation against international best practice. Our NOURISHING framework is consistent with and supports the work of INFORMAS.

We are a member of The Healthy Caribbean Coalition; an alliance of civil society organisations established to combat chronic diseases and their associated risk factors among people in the Caribbean. We share information and best practice to jointly influence and create effective methods for reducing the burden of non-communicable diseases in the region. 

The Global Obesity Prevention Centre, which is part of the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, uses a unique systems approach to preventing obesity by concurrently studying the many causes of the obesity epidemic. 

We work with the Global Obesity Prevention Centre to exchange knowledge; link science to policy and action; and maximise our impact on government policies to reduce non-communicable diseases worldwide. 

Within the George Institute’s Food Policy Division, we engage with the WHO Collaborating Centre for Population Salt Reduction on our work related to policy actions to reduce salt consumption.

  • National Cancer Societies

We build relationships with national cancer societies whose cancer prevention work includes the areas of food, nutrition and physical activity.
