Get the latest news in healthy equity from the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) is committed to reducing cancer health disparities and has created strategic priorities for eliminating such disparities through research, education, advocacy and service.
Despite the steady overall decline in cancer incidence and mortality rates in the United States, disparities in cancer burdens continue to exist among certain population groups.
Such disparities include differences in incidence, prevalence, mortality and burden of cancer and related adverse health conditions, beyond what would be expected under equitable circumstances that exist among specific population groups (which may be characterized by gender, age, race/ethnicity, income, social class, disability, geographic location or sexual orientation) in the US.
