Need and Use of Information Collection: This submission is a request for OMB to approve the Evaluation of Center for Global Health's (CGH) Workshops for three years. These workshops are organized and funded by the National Cancer Institute's CGH in conjunction with various partners ranging from foreign Ministries of Health and research institutions, to international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and U.S. academic institutions. The workshops to be evaluated are the Symposiums on Global Cancer Research, Workshops in Cancer Control Planning and Implementation, the Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention, Women's Empowerment Cancer Advisory Network Workshops (WE-CAN), Regional Grant Writing and Peer Review Workshops and other similar workshops. While these workshops differ in content and delivery style, their underlying goals are the same; they intend to initiate and enhance cancer control efforts, increase capacity for cancer research, foster new partnerships, and create research and cancer control networks. The proposed evaluation requests information about the outcomes of each of these workshops including (1) new cancer research partnerships and networks (2) cancer control partnerships and networks, (3) effects on cancer research, and (4) effect on cancer control planning and implementation efforts. The information will be collected 3-12 months after the workshops and is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of these workshops in order to inform future programming and funding decisions.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 203.Start Printed Page 26438
