Children’s Cancer Network’s partners with the Arizona Departmnt of Health Services for State Wide Initiative
For the last two decades, the National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) has worked with all 50 states, the District of Columbia, (7) U.S. Territories, and (8) American Indian/Alaskan Native Tribes to plan, execute, and evaluate successful cancer programming. Through funding, guidance, and technical assistance, the CDC aims to build capacity and inspire change within each state, territory, and tribal nation it touches.
The Arizona Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (AzCCCP) works to meet the national priorities of 1) primary prevention, 2) early detection and treatment, 3) survivorship, and 4) health equity. This is accomplished by working across other programs within ADHS and by convening the Arizona Cancer Coalition (ACC). This group of health providers, insurers, data scientists, philanthropists, and community advocates gather together to develop and execute strategically crafted work plans that focus on each area of the cancer care continuum. Their plans are combined every so often and together make up the five-year Arizona Cancer Control Plan.
