Guiding Cancer Control: A Path to Transformation
 
This new report, from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine defines the key principles, attributes, methods, and tools needed to achieve the goal of implementing an effective national cancer control plan. It describes the current structure of cancer control from a local to global scale, identifies necessary goals for the system, and formulates the path towards integrated disease control systems and a cancer-free future. This framework is a crucial step in establishing an effective, efficient, and accountable system for controlling cancer and other diseases.
 
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 27, 2019 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
