The GO Map, its latest version released in Spring 2017, 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 GO Map’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
The creation of The GO Map – formerly known as 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 (GO) 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 GO Map provides resources to partners across the world to address the challenges of cancer and reduce cancer-related deaths.
Special thanks to the National Cancer Institute's Center for Global Health for collaborating with GO on this work.
