Our Neighbour of Choice (NoC) community grant programme supports the work of local non-profit organisations that strive to improve people’s quality of life and to preserve the environment in communities in which we have a presence. Established by MSD globally in the 1990s, the NOC programme fosters partnerships with local non-profit organisations whose mission is to promote the well-being of community residents. We provide financial resources, enhanced by employee volunteerism, to support community programmes that aim to improve healthcare quality and protect the environmental health of the local community.


Cancer represents one of the world’s most urgent unmet medical needs and at MSD we remain committed to turning breakthrough biomedical innovations into novel therapies that help extend and improve the lives of people with cancer worldwide. We believe that policy researchers play a critical role – through their research work, educational activity and public outreach – in informing valuable policy dialogues based on evidence. Through this Independent Oncology Policy Grant Programme, MSD seeks to enable institutions to enhance their capacities in research, teaching and dissemination. Beyond supporting independent research, the Programme will provide an international forum for researchers to share ideas on emerging cancer policy issues and identify new areas for policy study.
