National Support to Enhance Implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Control Activities

CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control awarded RFA-DP13-1315, “National Support to Enhance Implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Control Activities,” to the American Cancer Society and George Washington Cancer Institute. They are funded to provide high-quality technical assistance and training to National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP)-funded programs and their partners. The five-year project began September 1, 2013.

This two funded organizations provide support to comprehensive cancer control (CCC) constituents in four focus areas—

  • Local implementation of CCC activities.
  • Identification and implementation of systems and environmental change strategies that promote health, support healthy behaviors, and facilitate community-clinical linkages to build support for interventions to prevent and reduce the cancer burden.
  • Enhancement and sustainability of partnerships.
  • Support for communication strategies to promote CCC program successes and leverage additional resources for cancer control and prevention.
