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.

Cancer Health Disparities Notice

Cancer Health Disparities Notice

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) defines “cancer health disparities” as adverse differences in cancer incidence (new cases), cancer prevalence (all existing cases), cancer death (mortality), cancer survivorship, and burden of cancer or related health conditions that exist among specific population groups in the United States. These population groups may be characterized by age, disability, education, ethnicity, gender, geographic location, income, or race. People who are poor, lack health insurance, and are medically underserved (have limited or no access to effective health care)—regardless of ethnic and racial background—often experience a greater burden of disease than the general population.
