Operating within the overall framework of the GICR, the IARC Caribbean Regional Hub is a partnership between IARC, the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United States National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR).

Each of these organizations supports capacity-building for cancer registration in the region under the GICR.
