California Tribal Comprehensive Cancer Control Program


CTCCP’s Mission and Objectives

In June 2017, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded the California Rural Indian Health Board, Inc. Research and Public Health Department funds to implement the CA Tribal Comprehensive Cancer Control Program. The CDC funded programs that would implement comprehensive cancer control through community chosen educational strategies and culturally adapted policies, systems, and environmental (PSE) changes.

The CTCCCP has been administered by the California Rural Indian Health Board Inc. (CRIHB) Research and Public Health Department, with 8 partnering Tribal Health Programs (THPs). It is a Tribal-focused program working to decrease cancer burden in American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) communities.

The CTCCCP aligns its work with the four primary objectives of CDC that work to Emphasize the Primary Prevention of Cancer, Facilitate Screening/Early Detection, Improve Cancer Survivors’ Quality of Life and Promote Health Equity in Cancer Control.

The overall project focuses on health systems changes, community and clinical linkages, environmental changes and the collection of baseline data to inform the development of program activities.
