Who We Are – Comprehensive Cancer Control Program

Who We Are
Comprehensive Cancer Control Program

The Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) Program is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded initiative to strengthen efforts across Minnesota to decrease the negative impact of cancer.

Our team works with other organizations and individuals to plan and implement a coordinated approach to address cancer in Minnesota, including prevention and detection, treatment, survivorship and end of life care.

In order to coordinate and implement these efforts, MDH worked with partners in 2005 to establish The Minnesota Cancer Alliance.

Cancer Plan Minnesota

In 2016, The Minnesota Cancer Alliance together with MDH led the development of Cancer Plan Minnesota 2025: A Framework for Action.

This framework for action invites everyone to get involved. It challenges organizations and individuals in every sector and every region of the state to step up, work together and make a difference for all Minnesotans.

  • Prevention
  • Detection
  • Treatment

  • Health Equity

More than 30 statewide listening sessions along with online feedback informed six workgroups who recommended objectives and strategies for the plan. These groups looked closely for alignment, change potential and health equity when creating the objectives and strategies.

Get Involved

Cancer Plan Minnesota 2025 depends on people taking action together to achieve the identified objectives and strategies. The true measure of success will demonstrate that both traditional and non-traditional partners are taking action to address cancer in Minnesota.
