About the Cancer Disparities Progress Report

The AACR has been a longtime leader in advancing the science of cancer health disparities and the inaugural AACR Cancer Disparities Progress Report is an exciting new initiative with the overarching goal of increasing public understanding of cancer health disparities and of the vital importance of cancer health disparities research to saving lives. The report underscores the need for increased annual federal funding for the government entities that fuel progress against cancer health disparities, in particular, the National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
