The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) celebrates 30 years of success in serving people and saving lives through the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP). We congratulate our state, tribal, and territory programs, as well as their provider and community partners, on a job well done. Today, the NBCCEDP is the only nationwide cancer screening program in the United States—one that adheres to quality performance measures and clinically monitors those served by the program, from screening to treatment referral.
Reflecting on the past 30 years, while considering the burdens that still exist, CDC acknowledges that work is still needed to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to get the care they need to prevent and treat breast and cervical cancer. Moving forward, the NBCCEDP aims to accelerate efforts to improve cancer outcomes, reduce health disparities, and save women’s lives.
Sessions in this virtual meeting will focus on moving closer to health equity for improving breast and cervical cancer outcomes.
