Indiana Comprehensive Cancer Control
Established in 1998, NCCCP provides the funding, guidance and technical assistance that programs use to design and implement impactful, strategic and sustainable plans to prevent and control cancer. NCCCP currently supports all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 7 U.S.-associated pacific islands/territories and 8 tribes and tribal organizations.
Comprehensive Cancer Control Program
Comprehensive cancer control, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is “a collaborative process through which a community pools resources to reduce the burden of cancer that results in risk reduction, early detection, better treatment, and enhanced survivorship.”
How is Comprehensive Cancer Control Accomplished?
Comprehensive cancer control is led by the Indiana Department of Health, Cancer Section. Bringing together and actively involving concerned citizens and key stakeholders to provide a framework for assessing and addressing the cancer burden by:
- Enhancing infrastructure and resources for planning and implementation
- Mobilizing statewide support
