Abstract

During the last two decades extraordinary progress in developing and using effective cancer prevention strategies, early detection interventions, and cancer treatments has been made. This progress has resulted in an overall decline in mortality rates for all cancers combined. Nonetheless, cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States. Although cancer is a diagnosis that many survive, cancer experiences across populations may vary considerably. These differences in cancer experiences have created an unequal disease burden that presents distinct professional and moral challenges to our nation. Many cancer control plans suggest specific strategies that prioritize eliminating cancer-related disparities. This article describes certain cancer-related disparities in the United Sates and gives several examples of how communities and disenfranchised populations are using comprehensive cancer control (CCC) approaches to eliminate these disparities. One or two interventions are highlighted in each example.
