Global Cancer Prevention (GCP)

Our vision is to eliminate preventable cancers through high impact cancer prevention initiatives, particularly in low- and middle-income countries where the burden of cancer deaths is highest.
 

We focus on interventions that are:

  • Evidence-based and highly impactful  for preventing cancer.
  • Underutilized and effective, in part because they are not framed as life-saving cancer prevention initiatives.
  • Highly effective for adolescents, an age group often overlooked yet critical to addressing risk factors that can prevent cancer in adulthood.

To increase the adoption and scale-up of these high impact cancer prevention interventions, ACS leverages its strengths to:

  • Convene and collaborate with critical in-country stakeholders.
  • Share resources and expertise with in-country cancer organizations in research, education, communications, and advocacy.
  • Catalyze action to:
    • Create public awareness and demand for HPV vaccination as a key cancer prevention strategy.
    • Mobilize partners to work with their national governments to prioritize HPV vaccination as cancer prevention.
