Office of the Director
The Director's office is responsible for strengthening and expanding relationships with its network of collaborators, with governmental and non-governmental partners and with funding agencies in order to influence cancer control policy development through the provision of a reliable evidence-base. In this context, the close cooperation with WHO Headquarters and with WHO Regional Offices is important, as are the working relationships with current and potential Participating States.
Four Groups are located within the Director's Office: Communications (COM), Education and Training (ETR), Laboratory Services and Biobank (LSB), and the Gambia Hepatitis Intervention Study (GHIS). The first three Groups have a wide range of activities that are relevant across the Agency.
