What is Comprehensive Cancer Control
Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) consists of collaborative strategies to leverage community resources for cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment. Common CCC activities include implementation of strategies designed to reduce cancer risk, promote healthy lifestyles, ensure access to screenings/diagnostic technologies, and improve the quality of treatment and support services to enhance survivorship. Through the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control Division, CDC funds state-based CCC coalitions who work diligently to build infrastructure, leverage resources, conduct surveillance, determine priorities, and measure the impact of programs designed to improve cancer outcomes.
