Comprehensive Cancer Control Plans
Comprehensive cancer control (CCC) plans identify how an organization or coalition addresses the burden of cancer in its geographic area. The plans are specific to each region and based on data collected about people living there. They take the strategies that have worked, either in that region or in a similar place, and make them into a blueprint for action.
Plans are typically renewed every five years. During the fifth year, the plans are revised using different criteria. The Cancer Plan Self-Assessment Tool gives a basic framework to evaluate and update CCC plans.
All 50 states, the District of Columbia, 6 U.S. Pacific Island jurisdictions and Puerto Rico, and 8 tribes and tribal organizations have produced 63 plans. In addition to these plans, the Cancer Council of the Pacific Islands developed a Pacific Regional Plan. [PDF-5.3MB]
