Overview: We are assisting CDC in evaluating multiple colorectal cancer screening implementation programs funded through the Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP). The implementation of science-based evaluation includes developing and collecting process measures, and conducting qualitative assessments and cost-effectiveness analyses. The findings will be disseminated in peer-reviewed journal manuscripts and conference presentations.

Overview: The goal of this project is to understand barriers along the cancer continuum related to screening, diagnosis and treatment by surveying a representative cohort of newly diagnosed colorectal, breast and cervical cancer patients.

Overview: We are facilitating coordination and collaboration among the ACCSIS research projects and locally developed innovative approaches to provide the evidence base on multilevel interventions necessary to scale-up colorectal cancer screening, follow-up, and referral to care, especially among communities who are medically underserved, people with lower incomes and people who are uninsured.
Funder: CDC [75D30122F15562]
Overview: We are supporting CDC to conduct a mixed-methods evaluation using implementation science frameworks and economics theories. We are currently collecting qualitative data to finalize research questions that will form the basis for a formalized evaluation of the NBCCEDP.

Overview: The overall goal of this study is to test a multilevel package of interventions at the community- and health system-levels to connect adolescent girls and young women with a source of regular care to provide a sustainable platform for successful implementation of regular HIV testing and adherence to antiviral treatment.

Overview: We are evaluating cancer registry operations to identify optimal approaches to improve timeliness, completeness, and overall data quality. Activity-based cost will be generated for each registry activity to assess the cost-efficiency of adopting improvements in cancer data acquisition and data processing.
Funder: NCI [U01 CA275054]
Overview: The goal is to develop and test an integrated model of cancer control for adolescents and young adults living with HIV that can be delivered as an embedded component in existing HIV treatment programs in primary care facilities and linked with specialist treatment in cancer centers.

Overview: Kenya has a high incidence of breast and cervical cancers, and most women are diagnosed with late-stage disease. We will conduct a study to assess the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of strategies to increase the uptake of cancer screening and completion of recommended diagnostic and treatment services.
