Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalition
The Department of Health’s Chronic Disease Prevention & Management Branch’s HCCCP convenes key leaders from across the state, including health care providers, community organizations, advocates and cancer survivors, forming the Hawaii Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalition. With a vision of “No More Cancer,” the coalition developed a statewide cancer plan in 2003 to reduce Hawaii’s cancer burden. The plan, which was updated in 2010, is a road map for the coalition to identify gaps in cancer care, share best practices and address its top four priorities: prevention, early detection, equitable access to care and quality of life. The coalition has been involved in activities such as mobilizing efforts that support policy and environmental changes, increasing cancer survivorship resources and widening access to patient navigation services in the cancer care system.
