A Targeted Approach to Cancer Control

Our Action Areas provide extra support in areas of the Wisconsin Cancer Plan where need is greatest. Work with us to make progress on cancer-related issues that need more targeted attention.

Alcohol & Cancer

Drinking alcohol increases risk for at least seven types of cancer – and Wisconsin has the highest rate of heavy drinking in the nation. We can help you raise awareness about the alcohol-cancer connection and reduce alcohol-related cancers.

Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosis and cause of cancer death for women and men in Wisconsin. We can help you improve colorectal cancer screening rates to prevent this cancer and detect it at earlier stages when treatment is more successful.

HPV Vaccination

The HPV vaccine dramatically reduces risk for at least six types of cancer in women and men — yet Wisconsin’s vaccination rate is alarmingly low. We can help you ensure more Wisconsin youth get the HPV vaccine.

Screening Disparities

Too many Wisconsinites experience barriers to the cancer screenings they need to detect cancer at earlier stages. We can help reduce cancer screening disparities and save lives.


Cancer survivorship is an increasingly pressing issue in Wisconsin. We can help you better understand and serve the unique needs of this growing population.
