Research Programs and Initiatives
The Center for Global Health engages in a variety of research programs and initiatives throughout the world. Programs build on the strategic priorities of CGH through initiatives that promote knowledge sharing in cancer research and cancer control, strengthen capacity through training, and develop research networks to facilitate collaboration and increase efforts to reduce the global burden of cancer.
CGH develops initiatives and collaborates with other NCI divisions, NCI-designated cancer centers, and countries to support cancer control planning, encourage capacity building, and support cancer research and research networks.
