Cancer control efforts in the United States are particularly complex, involving more than a dozen federal agencies, 65 states and territories, and many private organizations, both nonprofit organizations and forprofit companies. Currently there is no uniform way of coordinating the efforts and priorities of these diverse stakeholders.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, with support from the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Cancer Institute, convened a committee to develop a national strategy for cancer control. The resulting consensus report, Guiding Cancer Control: A Path to Transformation, presents the committee’s strategic vision and its recommendations defining the key principles, attributes, methods, and tools needed to achieve the goal of implementing an effective national cancer control plan.
