Partnerships to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities
Initiated in 2001, Partnerships to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (PRCHD), formerly known as the Minority Institution Cancer Center Partnership (MI/CCP), is a program that enables institutions serving racial/ethnic and/or underserved communities with cancer health disparities and NCI-Designated Cancer Centers (CCs) to train scientists from diverse backgrounds in cancer research and to effectively deliver cancer advances to racially and ethnically diverse communities.
The overall goals of the program are to:
- Build research and training capacity at underrepresented-serving institutions.
- Create stable, long-term collaborations between institutions serving racial/ethnic and/or underserved communities with cancer health disparities and CCs in research, training, career development, and outreach.
- Improve effectiveness of CC research, education, and outreach for underserved populations.
- Export successful approaches for addressing disparities to all CCs and other key networks and consortiums.
PRCHD establishes partnerships through two mechanisms:
- Feasibility Studies for Collaborative Interaction for Minority Institution/Cancer Center Partnerships (P20)
- Partnerships to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (U54)
