Through collective action ACS NRTCC will tackle disparities in cervical cancer prevention, screening, and treatment in order to eliminate cervical cancer and reduce the harms caused by the disease.
The ACS NRTCC is a coordinated effort that will accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer primarily by addressing health disparities. We engage key organizations to create the national roadmap for cervical cancer elimination. This roadmap addresses issues across the cancer continuum from prevention through survivorship. We aim to reduce barriers to care, eliminate disparities, reduce harms, and promote new technologies that reduce both morbidity and mortality of cervical cancer for everyone.
ACS roundtables are a recommended and proven model for creating multi-sector partnerships to tackle the most complex problems across the cancer continuum.
Every person should have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive cervical cancer. Therefore, we commit to centering health equity in all that we do. We agree to work toward fairness and justice by systematically assessing disparities in opportunities, outcomes, and representation, and redressing [those] disparities through focused actions.
We collaborate with partner organizations, offering various tools, resources, learning opportunities, and discussion platforms needed to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.
Cervical cancer can often be found early, and sometimes even prevented, by having regular screening tests. If detected early, cervical cancer is one of the most successfully treatable cancers. Whether you or a loved one are worried about developing cervical cancer, have just been diagnosed, are going through treatment, or are trying to stay well after treatment, this information can help you find the answers you need.
The American Cancer Society serves as the backbone to six mission-critical national roundtables.
