CRCHD Reports

  • CRCHD Annual Report
    Outlines CRCHD's programs, selected projects, investigators, and partnerships.
  • The CURE Paradigm: Enhancing Workforce Diversity
    Describes the Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) training program.
  • CURE Infographic
    Visually lays out each career stage of the CURE pipeline, highlights specific successes of the program, and provides concrete ways for interested parties to become involved as a CURE scholar.
  • Excess Cervical Cancer Mortality: A Marker for Low Access to Health Care in Poor Communities
    Compilation of recommendations from the more than 180 multidisciplinary experts who participated in the Cervical Cancer Mortality Project convened by NCI’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities. These recommendations explore the components of the cervical cancer problem, identify critical needs, and suggest actions to meet those needs.

NIH/NCI Cancer Health Disparities Research Programs

The following programs and organizations help support NCI’s mission to reduce and eliminate cancer health disparities. Check out the About NCI page for a complete listing of NCI’s organizations.

  • CRCHD’s Community Network Program Centers (CNPCs)
    CNPCs represent the next generation of CRCHD's Community Networks Program (CNP). There are 23 Community Networks Program National and Regional Centers for reducing cancer health disparities that emphasize high quality intervention research involving controlled and rigorous studies aimed at reducing cancer health disparities.
  • CRCHD’s Geographic Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP)
    Facilitates collaboration, cooperation, information- and resource-sharing, and capacity-building among cancer health disparities researchers, trainees, outreach workers, and organizations.
  • CRCHD’s National Outreach Network (NON)
    Multidisciplinary program that bridges NCI-supported outreach and community education efforts with cancer health disparities research and training programs.
  • CRCHD’s Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity (PACHE)
    Program that enables institutions serving racial, ethnic, and/or underserved communities with cancer health disparities and NCI-designated Cancer Centers to train scientists from diverse backgrounds in cancer research and to effectively deliver cancer advances to racially and ethnically diverse communities.
  • National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) Programs
    The NIMHD oversees numerous programs that are central to NIH’s mission of uncovering new knowledge that will lead to better health for everyone.
  • NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP)
    Community-based program that aims to bring cancer clinical trials, as well as cancer care delivery research, to individuals in their own communities, thereby generating a broadly applicable evidence base that contributes to improved patient outcomes and a reduction in cancer disparities.
  • NIH Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD)
    Supports transdisciplinary multilevel integrated research that clarifies the complex interactions of the social and physical environment, mediating behavioral factors, and biologic pathways that determine health and disease in populations.
  • NIH Office of Research on Women's Health
    Works in partnership with the 27 NIH institutes and centers to ensure that women’s health research is part of the scientific framework at the NIH and throughout the scientific community.
