Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Mississippi, accounting for about one in every five deaths.
On average, each year, about 16,000 new cases are reported and 6,500 people die of cancer in Mississippi.
The fight against cancer will not be won without a comprehensive approach to coordinate the many cancer control and prevention efforts on the state. MSDH is building a comprehensive, statewide cancer control plan like that in other states. Its goal is to have communities pool resources to encourage healthy lifestyles, promote cancer screenings, and improve cancer care.
The Mississippi Partnership for Comprehensive Cancer Control (MP3C) is a group of individuals and organizations working together to create a statewide cancer plan and make a difference in the lives of Mississippians. Over 100 members have joined and participate in a coalition of workgroups to create and implement the state comprehensive cancer control plan. You are cordially invited to participate in one of five workgroups that carry this work forward.
