Welcome to the Connecticut Cancer Partnership

Cancer is a powerful adversary. Maybe the most powerful there is. But in our fight to prevent and control it, we have the power of our own. The Power of Unity.

The Connecticut Cancer Partnership unites the members of our state’s diverse cancer community–academic and clinical institutions, state and local government health agencies, industry and insurers, advocacy and community groups, and cancer survivors.

Together, the coalition has developed and is now implementing a comprehensive plan to reduce the suffering and death due to cancer and improve the quality of life of cancer survivors throughout Connecticut.

No single organization has the power to address every cancer concern. But every organization, sharing a single vision, has power yet to be fully realized. This is why the Connecticut Cancer Partnership exists.

Call to Action

Dear Connecticut Health Providers,

Nationally, the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is estimated to cause 36,000 new cases of cancer each year.

We have an opportunity to eradicate HPV-associated cancers, and yet too many people are not getting the safe and effective vaccine that prevents six different cancers associated with the human papillomavirus (HPV) including oral pharyngeal and cervical cancer. The HPV vaccine is approved for ages 9 years through 45 years for ALL GENDERS.

The American Cancer Society and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend vaccination at age 9, and some of Connecticut’s biggest advocates are leading this charge, including the Connecticut chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), The Connecticut HPV Vaccination Workgroup, the Connecticut Cancer Partnership and the Connecticut Department of Health.
