Kentucky Cancer Action Plan (CAP)

The Kentucky Cancer Action Plan (CAP) is the state's comprehensive cancer control plan to reduce our burden of cancer. The Kentucky Cancer Consortium is charged with implementing the CAP. The Plan is a blueprint for action that addresses four key areas of the cancer continuum: prevention, early detection, treatment and care, and quality of life. Each section contains major goals, objectives, and suggested strategies.

In 1999, the Kentucky Cancer Program, the Kentucky Department for Public Health, and the American Cancer Society developed the plan with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The first Kentucky Cancer Action Plan was completed in 2001. Revisions are made as needed. The Plan's last complete revision was approved by the Consortium in 2005.
