    We know more about cancer prevention, detection, and treatment than ever before--yet not all segments of the U.S. population have benefited to the fullest extent possible from these advances. Some ethnic minorities experience more cancer than the majority population, and poor people--no matter what their ethnicity--often lack access to adequate cancer care. This report provides an authoritative view of cancer as it is experienced by ethnic minorities and the medically underserved.

    In April 1997 an Institute of Medicine workshop on implant contraceptives reviewed newly available data on Norplant's efficacy, safety, and use; identified lessons to be learned about the method's development, introduction, use, and market experience; and explored approaches to developing and introducing new contraceptives based on those lessons.

    How safe is our food supply? Each year the media report what appears to be growing concern related to illness caused by the food consumed by Americans. These food borne illnesses are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, pesticide residues, and food additives. Actions taken at the federal, state, and local levels in response to the increase in reported incidences of food borne illnesses point to the need to evaluate the food safety system in the United States. This report assesses the effectiveness of the current food safety system and provides recommendations on changes needed to ensure an effective science-based food safety system.

    This interim report focuses on current civilian capabilities rather than ongoing and planned research and development (R&D) programs, which will be addressed in the committee's final report. The interim report thus provides a baseline against which to evaluate the utility of technology and R&D programs. It identifies some general areas in which innovative R&D is clearly needed, and in some cases is already underway.

    As NIH's success has grown, so has pressure from advocacy groups and other members of the public to devote more spending to their health concerns.
