California's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan: Progress Report 2009
2009 | Download
Cancer mortality from all malignant tumors has significantly declined since 1998. Based on current projections, California will observe a 15% reduction in cancer mortality by 2010 (from 182.7 deaths per 100,000 persons to a projected 155.8 in 2010).
That's just one of the findings in the California's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan Progress Report 2009, which tracks progress towards achieving the state's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan goals for 2010. The plan blends community participation with the science of cancer control; examines the barriers and gaps in cancer control efforts; and identifies measurable goals, strategies and tactics needed for the future.
