Proposed Collection: Evaluation of Cancer Control Leadership Forums at the Center for Global Health (CGH) (NCI), 0925-NEW, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: This submission is a request for OMB to approve the Cancer Control Leadership Forums. 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 goal of the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Control Leadership Forums is to increase the capacity of participating countries to initiate or enhance cancer control planning and implementation in their respective countries. The Forums are an opportunity for countries to exchange experiences and ideas about creating and implementing comprehensive cancer control plans. The proposed evaluation requests information about the outcomes of the forums including (1) status of cancer control planning and implementation in each participating country, (2) outcomes related to the action plans (e.g. developing written materials, completion of action items, resources and support acquired),(3) successes and challenges related to the action plans, and (4) new cancer control partnerships and networks. Baseline information regarding the status of cancer control planning and implementation will be collected 3 months prior to the Forums in order to inform the development of each Forum. The evaluation information will be collected 3-24 months after each forum 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 108.Start Printed Page 41296
