2016-2020 Cancer Plan

The 2016-2020 Colorado Cancer Plan provides a clear set of goals, objectives and strategies across the cancer continuum of care: prevention, screening and early detection, treatment and survivorship. It calls for addressing the risk factors for cancer by reducing obesity and tobacco use, improving air and water quality, and integrating health systems to improve quality of care and survivorship.

The Colorado Cancer Coalition

Statewide partnerships are integral to accomplishing the goals set out in the Cancer Plan. The Colorado Cancer Coalition is a valued partner in implementing the work of the Cancer Plan.
