Merck Foundation Launches New Initiative

Monday, May 23, 2016

The Merck Foundation has announced the launch of a new initiative, the Alliance to Advance Patient-Centered Cancer Care (the Alliance), to support programs aimed at improving timely access to patient-centered care and reduce disparities in cancer care, especially for vulnerable and underserved populations in the United States. Non-profit organizations in the United States are invited to apply for an Alliance grant to support the implementation of multi-faceted cancer care programs to strengthen patient-provider communications, including patient engagement and patient-centered treatment planning; enhance care coordination and integration; improve patient outcomes, and build sustainable partnerships that advance patient-centered cancer care and help reduce disparities in access to high-quality care for underserved communities.

Interested organizations can learn more about the application process, eligibility requirements, guidance for proposed interventions, and deadlines on the Merck Foundation's website.
