Toward Health Equity Oncology Grant
Due to social, environmental, and economic disparities, historically neglected and underrepresented communities are at increased risk of developing or dying from breast cancer. Toward Health Equity Oncology Grant™ (THE Oncology Grant) was created to address these health inequities.
Gilead awarded $7.6M in grants to 24 U.S.-based organizations addressing barriers to breast cancer care. These evidence-based programs focus on patient navigation and digital/mobile interventions such as patient navigator training, cultural competency training, and services addressing barriers such as transportation.
The 2023 grantees were chosen based on several criteria, including their ability to create measurable and sustainable change toward health equity. The new grantees serve historically neglected and underrepresented communities, including Hispanic, Jewish, LGBTQIA, Indigenous American, and others, and will work to address access disparities in the treatment of breast cancer.
