IARC Handbooks of Cancer Prevention Volume 10 Cervix Cancer Screening

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) was established in 1965 by the World HealthAssembly, as an independently financed organization within the framework of the World HealthOrganization. The headquarters of the Agency are in Lyon, France. The Agency conducts a programme of research concentrating particularly on the epidemiology of cancer and the study of potential carcinogens in the human environment. Its field studies are supplemented by biological and chemical research carried out in the Agency’s laboratories in Lyon and, through collaborative research agreements, in national research institutions in many countries. The Agency also conducts a programme for the education and training of personnel for cancer research.
