The Mission of the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership (CCCNP)
Through coordination and collaboration, the CCCNP assists comprehensive cancer control (CCC) coalitions to develop and sustain implementation of comprehensive cancer control plans at the state, tribe, territory, U.S. Pacific Island Jurisdiction and local levels.
The CCCNP was formed in 1998 as a collaborative group of diverse national organizations working together to build and strengthen CCC efforts across the nation. Today, the CCC National Partnership is an influential group of eighteen leading cancer organizations that utilize their combined strengths and resources to change the trajectory of the cancer burden in the US.
These eighteen leading cancer organizations have joined together to assist CCC coalitions in developing, implementing, and evaluating CCC plans at the state, tribe, territory, U.S. Pacific Island Jurisdiction and local levels.
