Accessibility Policy

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is committed to providing access to all individuals--disabled or not--who are seeking information on its website. To provide this information, the NCI website has been designed to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (as amended).

Section 508 requires that all individuals with disabilities (whether they are federal government employees or members of the general public) have access to and use of information and data comparable to that provided to individuals without disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed.

Any individual using assistive technology (such as a screen reader, Braille reader, etc.) who experiences difficulty in accessing information on www.cancer.gov, should send an e-mail to Contact Us (cancergovstaff@mail.nih.gov) or call NCI's Office of Communications at 301-496-9096 for assistance. The nature of the accessibility problem and contact information should be included in any e-mail or telephone message. If the accessibility problem involves a particular webpage, including the URL (Web address) of the page would be helpful. A member of the NCI website staff will contact individuals with accessibility problems as soon as possible to assist them and to provide them the information sought.
