Our Goals

The American Cancer Society National Consortium for Cancer Screening and Care is guided by action-oriented goal statements that promote the urgency of our collective response and opportunity. Over the course of a year, we will address each of these goal statements through a consensus-building cycle to create recommendations that will minimize the negative effects emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic and move us forward in cancer screening and care as a nation. Our goal statements include:

Accelerate

Accelerate responses to long-standing and emerging barriers to cancer screening and care.
Strengthen

Strengthen preparedness, infrastructure, and partnerships to minimize disruptions and address inequities.
Mobilize

Mobilize around sustained, coordinated commitments to promote cancer screening and care as a public health priority and improve the long-term effectiveness of screening programs.
