Proposed Collection: The Study of the Global Cancer Project Map, 0925-NEW, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: This is a new information collection request for the Study of the Global Cancer Project Map (GCPM) for three years. Information will be collected from health care professionals and researchers in an effort to catalog international efforts related to cancer research, care, and outreach by integrating cancer control program and research project information from various organizations worldwide.

The Global Cancer Project Map (GCPM) is a new, interactive, web-based tool that enables healthcare professionals and researchers to make informed decisions, initiate partnerships, and develop ideas for collaborations in cancer control. Its features allow people to (1) search for collaborators and projects by cancer type, project type, and country; (2) visualize information pertinent to each project on an interactive world map; (3) initiate contact with principal investigators and program directors; and (4) overlay heat maps of epidemiological measures that provide a representation of the burden of cancer by country.

The primary goals of GCPM are to facilitate the building of collaborations across organizations; accelerate progress, ensure a balanced investment of resources, and align global cancer care and control efforts; and continue data collection from national and international organizations to develop the Map as a resource to view and better understand international efforts in cancer research and control.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 167.
