National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program
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. Currently, the NBCCEDP funds all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 6 U.S. territories, and 13 American Indian/Alaska Native tribes or tribal organizations to provide screening services for breast and cervical cancer. To increase screening rates, the program also supports education and outreach activities, case management services, and research.

National Program of Cancer Registries
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 currently supports central cancer registries in 46 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Pacific Island Jurisdictions, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 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.
