2017-2021 Massachusetts Cancer Plan

A strategic plan to reduce the cancer burden in our state.

The State Plan addresses all aspects of the cancer continuum, including prevention, early detection and screening, survivorship, treatment, palliation, and end-of-life care, as well as such cross-cutting issues as advocacy and community engagement, eliminating disparities, research, and surveillance. The Plan’s strategies are intended to direct collective efforts toward specific and measurable objectives that will reduce the cancer burden.
