Cancer in Colorado
The 2021-2025 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 the built environment, and integrating health systems to improve quality of care and survivorship.
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 and the Colorado Comprehensive Cancer Control Program.
