Nevada Cancer Plan
A framework for improving quality of life.
The State of Nevada Comprehensive Cancer Plan is the result of a statewide collaborative designed to improve Nevada’s cancer prevention and control efforts. This working document addresses Nevada’s cancer burden and outlines goals, objectives, and strategies for cancer control in our state.
Why have a statewide plan?
Each year, nearly 14,000 Nevadans will be diagnosed with cancer and an additional 4,880 people will lose their lives from this disease. Reducing the burden of cancer requires the collective effort, cooperation and collaboration of our communities, public and private organizations, and individuals.
The goal of this plan is to interpret and draw from data to encourage collaboration to improve Nevada cancer prevention and early detection, access to appropriate and effective cancer treatment and survivor quality of life.
