Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) is sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The RTIPs website is a searchable database of evidence-based cancer control programs that provides program planners and public health practitioners easy and immediate access to: 1) programs tested in a research study, 2) publication(s) of the study findings, and 3) program products or materials used with a particular study population in a specific setting. Given that the programs on this site are based on evidence derived research studies, they may be particularly effective in serving the populations and communities in the settings in which they were originally tested.
