Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. (Plan, Link, Act, Network with Evidence-Based Tools) is a web portal that provides easy access to data and research-based resources that can help state and local cancer control program planners and staff and cancer prevention and control researchers to design, implement, and evaluate evidence-based cancer control programs.
A part of Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T., State Cancer Profiles is a comprehensive system of interactive maps and graphs enabling the investigation of cancer trends at the national, state, and county level. The goal of the site is to provide a system to characterize the cancer burden in a standardized manner in order to motivate action, integrate surveillance into cancer control planning, characterize areas and demographic groups, and expose health disparities. It is a collaboration between NCI and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Cancer Trends Progress Report Update summarizes our nation's progress against cancer in relation to Healthy People 2020 targets set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services. The report includes key measures of progress along the cancer control continuum and uses national trend data to illustrate where advancements have been made.
NCI's Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) developed this website to help cancer control planners, program staff, and policy makers consider the impact of risk factor reduction, increased early detection, and increased access to optimal treatment on future colorectal cancer mortality rates.
