The Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Program and its partnership arm, the Wisconsin Cancer Council, work to engage public, private and community partners to develop, implement and promote a statewide approach to cancer control.
The vision is for a healthier Wisconsin by reducing the impact of cancer.

- Prevention: Using policy, systems and environmental change for obesity prevention, HPV vaccine use, alcohol policy, sun/UV safety
- Screening: Promoting breast, cervical and/or colorectal screenings
- Treatment: Promoting clinical trials, patient navigation in Wisconsin
- Survivorship: Survivorship care plans, survivorship forum planning
- Data collection: Implementation of the Wisconsin Cancer Care Survey, writing Wisconsin Cancer Issue Briefs
