The Ohio Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan 2015-2020

Ohio's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan 2015-2020 (The Cancer Plan) is a strategic plan to reduce the cancer burden in the state. It is designed to provide guidance to individuals and organizations spanning a wide range of health and social disciplines that can play a role in controlling cancer. Several aspects of the cancer continuum are addressed. These aspects include primary prevention, screening and early detection, and patient-centered services involving treatment, quality of life and end-of-life care.

The Cancer Plan has three guiding principles that cut across all three goals and related objectives:

  • Make data-driven decisions;
  • Use evidence-based interventions, and;
  • Identify and address cancer disparities and achieve health equity.

The Cancer Plan's strategies are intended to direct collective efforts toward specific and measurable objectives that will reduce the cancer burden in Ohio. Many of the outcomes will have benefits extending beyond cancer to other leading causes of death, as it aligns with the statewide chronic disease plan, "Ohio's Plan to Prevent and Reduce Chronic Disease: 2014-2018".
