McCabe Centre for Law & Cancer

Advancing law to fight cancer

The McCabe Centre for Law & Cancer is the only centre of its kind in the world using law to prevent cancer and to protect people affected by it.

We are a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Law & Noncommunicable Disease, and the Knowledge Hub for legal challenges to the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.


Through world-leading research and training programs, we empower individuals, organisations and governments to use law as an effective tool to prevent cancer and other noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), and to advance equitable health care for all people.

Who are we?

We are based in Melbourne, Australia at Cancer Council Victoria with regional managers in the Pacific, Asia and Africa.

The McCabe Centre is a joint initiative of Cancer Council Victoria; the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), based in Geneva, Switzerland; and Cancer Council Australia.
