Our vision: A healthier Wisconsin by reducing the burden of cancer for everyone.
Everyone in Wisconsin deserves the chance to live life to the fullest. The Wisconsin Cancer Plan 2020-2030 help make that happen through comprehensive approach that is grounded in policy, systems, and environmental change.
What is Policy, Systems, and Environmental Change?
Healthy behaviors never happen in a vacuum.
The choices we make that affect our health are shaped by the policies that govern our communities; organizations (or “systems”) such as schools and clinics; and the physical and social environment in which we live.
- A teen is less likely to smoke when his community enacts laws to limit youth tobacco access.
- A parent is more likely to vaccinate their child to prevent HPV infection when a medical provider recommends the vaccine, and the medical provider is more likely to recommend a vaccine when a reminder system is in place.
- A family is more likely to get the exercise they need when their neighborhood includes safe sidewalks and parks.
These behaviors—and many more—reduce our risk of cancer and improve our health.
When we improve policies, systems, and environments, we can create lasting health improvements for everyone.
