Nevada Cancer Plan
Nevada's Next Cancer Plan...
Nevada is in the process of developing the 2021-2025 Nevada State Cancer Control Plan. The plan outlines priority areas and provides a framework for action in reducing the burden of cancer and improving the quality of life within our state. As a stakeholder in Nevada's cancer control efforts, we are seeking your ideas and input as we move forward in this process. Join us for our in-person discussion:

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 14,810 Nevadans will be diagnosed with cancer and an additional 5,390 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.
