What is comprehensive cancer control?
Comprehensive cancer control (CCC) is a collaborative and strategic approach used by communities and their partners to combine, share, and coordinate resources to reduce the burden of cancer. In 1998, CDC established the National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) to support this wide-ranging and inclusive effort. The program provides funding and technical support for the development and implementation of CCC plans. These plans guide the work of many and focus on current and emerging cancer issues, including cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation, and survivorship. Today, CDC funds CCC programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, seven tribes and tribal organizations, and seven U.S. territories.
