IARC's Mission: Cancer research for cancer prevention

The publications programme of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is an integral part of its mission to promote international collaboration in cancer research for cancer prevention. Several renowned and authoritative series, handbooks, textbooks, and manuals reflect the wide range of the Agency’s activities.

WHO Press is the exclusive distributor of IARC publications in print format.

Electronic formats of most of the Agency’s publications are available for free through the IARC Publications website.

Selected e-books are sold on a cost-recovery basis through this site, the IARC E-Bookshop.
