Campaign For Accuracy In Public Health Research (CAPHR)
The Campaign for Accuracy in Public Health Research (CAPHR) is an education and outreach initiative to promote credible, unbiased, and balanced assessments of science as the basis of policy decisions and help the public and policymakers understand the relevance of public health studies in our daily lives.
In particular, CAPHR promotes reform of the International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) Monographs Program and brings to light the deficiencies, misinformation, and consequences associated with its work.
In doing so, CAPHR seeks to challenge the troubling practice of producing questionable scientific evaluations and promoting those evaluations as the basis for unjustified public policy or commercial decisions.
About The CAPHR Coalition
The CAPHR Coalition is a diverse group of industry and business organizations that advocate for reform of the International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) Monographs Program. The Monographs Program, which evaluates cancer hazards, continues to misinform both the public and public health policies through its lack of clarity, transparency, and balance in assessing cancer hazards.
Upholding credible, unbiased and balanced science in policymaking is a universal principle that is not bound by borders or industry affiliations. Our group of manufacturing, energy and food interests aims to work closely with the United States Government, as well as its international counterparts, to reform IARC’s Monographs Program and bring greater transparency to the program’s questionable carcinogen evaluations, undue policy influence and impact, flawed methodologies and frequent conflicts of interest.
By leveraging CAPHR, the Coalition reinforces the ideals of the campaign to advocate for the modernization of this flawed program, and will provide individuals and policymakers with context to help them understand what headlines and public health studies actually mean for public health.
