Texas Cancer Plan

The Texas Cancer Plan (Plan) is the state’s call to action for cancer research, prevention, and control. The Plan identifies the cancer challenges and issues that affect the state. It also has goals, objectives, and strategies to help inform and guide the fight against cancer.

By statute, the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) facilitates the development of the Plan. The Texas Comprehensive Cancer Control Program and the Cancer Alliance of Texas assist CPRIT with the development and promotion of the Plan. The overall outcome and success of the Plan depend on the cooperation, collaboration, and resources of many stakeholders across the state.

The most current version of the Plan was developed in 2018.
