The Comprehensive Cancer Control Program develops policies and promotes activities that improve the quality and access to cancer information.
Comprehensive Cancer Control is a collaborative process through which a community pools resources to reduce the burden of cancer that results in: risk reduction, early detection, better treatment, and enhanced survivorship. This program is funded through a grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to the Department of Public Health & Social Services.
This is NOT a direct service program. Instead, this program focuses on bringing representatives from the cancer network on Guam (public, private and non-profit organizations as well as individuals) together to address prevention, early detection and treatment, survivorship, data & research, and policy & advocacy issues faced by cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, and families on Guam.
