The New Jersey Department of Health will implement integrated work for cancer prevention and control through the New Jersey State Cancer Registry (NPCR), New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) and the Office of Comprehensive Cancer Control (NCCCCP). These three programs will implement the strategies in the DP22-2202 Notice of Funding Opportunity to impact cancer burden in the State of New Jersey. The work of these programs will lead to the long term outcomes of interest: reduced cancer risk, better quality of life among cancer survivors, decreased cancer incident, morbidity and mortality, reduced cancer disparities and increased health equity.
Cancer prevention and control work will be positioned so that programs complement one another and enhance the outcomes. High quality data will be shared and will be enhanced through partners and the State Cancer Coalition. Each of the programs is positioned with an evaluation and performance measurement plan so that outcomes and progress can be measured, documented and shared.
