About the Idaho Comprehensive Cancer Control Program

Image of the state of Idaho,

Comprehensive cancer control is a national initiative through which communities and partner organizations pool resources to reduce the burden of cancer. These combined efforts help to:

  • Reduce cancer risk.
  • Find cancers earlier.
  • Improve treatments.
  • Increase the number of people who survive cancer.
  • Improve quality of life for cancer survivors.
Since 2005, the Comprehensive Cancer Control Program has worked to address cancer through prevention, early detection and survivorship activities. Our work focuses on the prevention and early detection of breast, lung, colorectal, cervical, and skin cancers. The Comprehensive Cancer Control Program supports activities in local communities through a partnership with the public health districts. The public health districts work with the community to educate on and encourage the early detection of cancers.
