Why Is a National Cancer Plan Needed?
People across the country and worldwide are counting on us to end cancer as we know it. Research alone will not accomplish this. To succeed, we must work together to develop strategies, share knowledge, and accelerate progress. The National Cancer Plan provides a comprehensive framework for this meaningful collaboration and unites us in acting on the vision President Biden and First Lady Biden set out in the Cancer Moonshot℠ to end cancer as we know it.
The National Cancer Plan centers on eight goals that describe what we are working toward—a world where more cancers are prevented and where people diagnosed with cancer live full and active lives.
