Application or LOI Due Date
Submissions must be received by May 15, 2021, at 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization for FY 2021 funding
Brief Description

This Notice of Special Interest informs current awardees that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is providing an opportunity for supplemental funding to support exploratory research studies to expand the current understanding of cancer stigma (as defined below), assess its impact on cancer control and prevention, and develop stigma-reduction interventions to improve cancer outcomes in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

The goals of these administrative supplements focused on global cancer stigma research are to: 1) elucidate the etiology and perpetuation of cancer stigma; 2) measure the impact of cancer stigma on physical and mental well-being and associated health behaviors of patients; 3) identify mechanisms and pathways by which stigma is a barrier to cancer prevention, treatment, palliation, and survivorship; and 4) develop interventions to reduce cancer stigma and improve cancer outcomes.
