NAFKAM skal fokusere på særskilt utbredte helseproblemer og -plager, særlig hos sårbare pasientgrupper der problemet har stor negativ innvirkning på individets livskvalitet. Et eksempel på dette er kreft. Her følger en kronologisk oversikt over vitenskapelige publikasjoner om temaet alternativ behandling ved kreft; der ansatte ved NAFKAM er blant forfatterne. I tillegg ivaretar NAFKAM det internasjonale forskningssamarbeidet CAM Cancer, som pr dato tilbyr mer enn 75 åpent tilgjengelige oppsummeringer av forskning på ulike alternative behandlingsformer brukt ved kreft.
