National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program
Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) is an integrated and coordinated approach to fighting cancer. CCC brings the power of collaboration to what otherwise might be a lonely fight. The result is a powerful network of groups that speaks with one voice about reducing cancer risk, detecting cancers earlier, improving access to quality cancer treatment, and improving survivors' quality of life.
In 1998, CDC established the National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) to help states, tribes, and territories develop local CCC plans. Today, CDC funds CCC programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 7 tribes and tribal organizations, and 7 U.S. territories and Pacific Island Jurisdictions.
People from all corners of the cancer community collaborate in CCC. This allows them to pool resources, share expertise, and find new insight into better ways to get the job done. CCC plans help prevent overlap of efforts and direct resources to where they matter most.
