Cancer

Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) consists of collaborative strategies to leverage community resources for cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment. NACCHO supports local health departments in planning, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based cancer prevention and control strategies to improve population health.

NACCHO is pleased to announce the release of Tobacco Cessation for Cancer Survivors: A Resource Guide for Local Health Departments.  This guide details the importance of tobacco cessation for cancer survivors and features recommendations on how local health departments can use existing resources to link cessation services to cancer survivors. This resource guide was created through collaboration with American Cancer Society under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cooperative agreement DP1315 National Support to Enhance Implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Control Activities.

NACCHO has partnered with the following organizations to help prevent cancer throughout the United States.
