California's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan
California’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan is a strategic plan to reduce the cancer burden in our state. It is designed to provide guidance to individuals and organizations spanning a wide range of health and social disciplines that can play a role in controlling cancer. All aspects of the cancer continuum are addressed. It presents goals, objectives, and strategies for the five-year period of 2021-2025 that are productive and useful applications for cancer control in order to reduce the burden of cancer in our state. Other content in the plan includes a progress summary of the 2016-2020 cancer plan, efforts initiated by the California Dialogue on Cancer (CDOC), emerging cancer trends, and cancer survivor stories. Objectives and strategies are intended to direct collective efforts toward specific and measurable objectives, which are targeted at reducing the cancer burden. Outcomes will enhance cancer prevention and control efforts and many of the outcomes will have health benefits extending beyond cancer to other leading causes of death, such as heart disease and diabetes.
