The Global Cancer Project Map (GCPM), released on March 25, 2015, is a web-based platform that catalogs international cancer research, cancer care, and cancer outreach programs. The platform aligns cancer care efforts of governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, academic institutions and industry partners.
The GCPM’s primary objectives are to:
- Facilitate the breaking down of silos and building of collaboration
- Accelerate progress, ensure a balanced investment of resources, and align global cancer care and cancer efforts
- Provide resources to view and better understand international efforts in cancer research and control
Special thanks to the Center for Global Health National Cancer Institute, U.S.A.
The creation of the Global Cancer Project Map and its potential to facilitate cancer control and research programs in resource-poor settings have been a result of an alliance between Global Oncology, Inc. and the National Cancer Institute’s Center for Global Health. Thanks to the database expertise and content standards provided by the National Cancer Institute, a component of the National Institutes of Health and an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Global Cancer Project Map provides resources to partners across the world to address the challenges of cancer and reduce cancer-related deaths.
