The Cancer Plan

The 2016-2020 Colorado Cancer Plan provides a five-year framework to reduce the risk, incidence and mortality associated with cancer in Colorado.

The 2016 – 2020 Cancer Plan

The 2016-2020 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 air and water quality, and integrating health systems to improve quality of care and survivorship.

  • Prevention: Goals 1-4
  • Screening & Early Detection: Goal 5
  • Diagnosis & Treatment: Goals 6-7
  • Survivorship & End-of-Life Care: Goal 8-9
  • Cross-cutting: Goals 10-11
