NC Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NC CCCP)

About the Program

NC CCCP logo

The NC Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NC CCCP) brings together stakeholders, groups and individuals that have an interest in keeping community members healthy. 

We work together to create plans and take action to:

  • Help lower the number of people affected by cancer, and
  • Reduce the burden of cancer in communities.

We equip others for action with the knowledge, skills and tools to promote health throughout the cancer continuum (prevention, early detection, treatment and supportive care, survivorship, and palliative care).

Our 6 Priorities

  1. Promote prevention and healthy lifestyle choices.
  2. Help people find cancer early by being screened at the right time.
  3. Educate about symptoms and risk factors.
  4. Increase access to health care, treatment and supportive services.
  5. Enhance survivors' quality of life through treatment and beyond.
  6. Advance diversity, equity and inclusion.

Partnerships for Greater Impact

Partnerships that work together have the greatest impact. Our partnerships are the backbone of comprehensive cancer control. We connect communities, identify barriers and improve the health of North Carolinians by:

  • Connecting resources and services,
  • Encouraging possible solutions,
  • Reducing the cancer burden and health disparities, and
  • Increasing access to care.
