Comprehensive cancer control is defined as an integrated and coordinated approach to reduce cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality through prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation. Some of the cancer control initiatives administered on a statewide basis by the School of Public Health section of Epidemiology are as follows:
- The Louisiana Breast and Cervical Health Program (LBCHP), funded by and part of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), provides access to lifesaving services for early detection of breast and cervical cancers to low-income, uninsured, and underserved women in Louisiana
- The Louisiana Cancer Control Partnership, also funded by the CDC, is a coalition dedicated to reducing cancer disparities by providing a comprehensive, integrated, and coordinated approach to the continuum of cancer control service delivery.
- A demonstration project for policy and system change for primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of cancer is funded by the CDC to show that by implementing policy and system changes, incidence and mortality rates of cancer can be impacted.
Louisiana is one of only two states in which the CDC funding for these cancer initiatives goes directly to an academic institution rather than the state health department.
