About IARC


IARC activities are funded mainly by the statutory contributions provided by its Participating States. The IARC Regular Budget for the 2016-2017 biennium was approved by the Governing Council in May 2015 at a level of 43.4 million euros, financed from the assessment on Participating States (42.9 million euros) and the Governing Council Special Fund (0.5 million euros).

In addition, the Agency continues to attract voluntary contributions earmarked for the programme and projects, mainly through competitive grants and increasingly through direct contributions from funding agencies ranging from charities to government organizations.

IARC also receives donations from private individuals. Such contributions are credited to the Agency's Undesignated Contributions account, from which allocations to the programme and projects are made according to Governing Council decisions.

We thank all our funders for their support, which enables us to fulfil our mission to reduce the global cancer burden.
