National Programs

Through its national programs, CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) works with national organizations, state health agencies, and other key groups to develop, implement, and promote effective cancer prevention and control practices.

Colorectal Cancer Control Program

DCPC’s Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) provides funding to 25 states and four tribes across the United States for five years. The program supports population-based screening efforts and provides colorectal cancer screening services to low-income men and women aged 50 to 64 years who are underinsured or uninsured for screening, when no other insurance is available.

Contact a local CRCCP program.

National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program

National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program: Screening Women, Saving Lives

Since 1991, DCPC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) has provided screening and diagnostic exams for breast and cervical cancer to low-income women with little or no health insurance. The NBCCEDP supports early detection programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 11 American Indian/Alaska Native organizations, and 5 U.S. territories. To increase screening rates, the program also supports education and outreach activities, case management services, and research.

DCPC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) collects data on cancer occurrence; the type, extent, and location of cancers; and the type of initial treatment. The NPCR supports central cancer registries in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Pacific Island jurisdictions. In addition, NPCR and the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program, in collaboration with the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, publish annual cancer incidence and death data in the United States Cancer Statistics: Incidence and Mortality Web-based Report.
