Cancer State Plan

The Path to Cancer Control in Alabama

The ACCCC’s Alabama Cancer Control Plan 2022-2027 is a collaborative document that lays out long-term guidelines and objectives in order to reduce the burden of cancer in Alabama.

The plan includes fundamental lifestyle changes such as the elimination of tobacco use, increased emphasis on physical activity and proper nutrition, participation in cancer screenings and vaccination, and appropriate and timely treatment.

It is divided into sections that include the Coalition's goals, objectives, and strategic actions that address topics relevant to cancer control in Alabama. These sections are primary prevention, secondary prevention, and tertiary prevention, which includes survivorship and palliative care. In addition, Health Equity has been included in the new five-year plan with goals to attain the highest level of health for all Alabamians regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, preferred language, or other factors that affect access to care and health outcomes. Each section covers current prevalence and mortality, and selected activities and programs among Coalition members to decrease cancer incidence and mortality in the state.
