Cancer Programs at ODH

The Centers for Disease Control defines comprehensive cancer control as a collaborative process through which a community and its partners pool resources to reduce the burden of cancer. Cancer incidence, mortality and morbidity can be reduced through prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation. ODH’s role in cancer prevention and control is seen in several areas throughout the department, making it truly a comprehensive approach. Together with a variety of partners inside and outside ODH, including the ODH Health Assessment Section, Ohio Partners for Cancer Control and American Cancer Society, the cancer program works to reduce the burden of cancer across the following programs:

Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP)

Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (OCCCP)

Cancer Incidence Surveillance System (OCISS)

Community Cancer Concerns
