California's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan
California’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan (cancer plan) is a blueprint to reduce the cancer burden in California. 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 which include:
Early detection and screening
Quality of life and end-of-life care
Research and surveillance
Eliminating disparities (cross-cutting)
The Comprehensive Cancer Program is charged with leading the development, distribution, and coordination of implementation of the plan through CDOC. California's first state cancer plan was created in 2004, and revised in 2010 with updated goals and objectives to support efforts through 2015. A draft of the third iteration state cancer plan has been produced and contains goals and measurable objectives to support continued cancer control efforts through 2020. Unfortunately, the 2016-2020 cancer plan is not available at this time. The current iteration (2021-2025) of California's cancer plan includes goals and objectives to be achieved by 2025.
