The IAEA established the Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT) in 2004 to fully realize the public health impact obtained through global partnerships in cancer control and technology transfer in radiation medicine. In 2009, the IAEA and the World Health Organization (WHO) established a Joint Programme on Cancer Control.
Through PACT, and with the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and other cancer-related organizations, the IAEA is supporting a coordinated global response to the needs of low and middle income (LMI) IAEA Member States in the implementation of comprehensive national cancer control programmes.
