Cancer Moonshot℠ Efforts: Federal Cervical Cancer Collaborative (FCCC)

Drawing inspiration from the Cancer Moonshot℠ initiative, the FCCCExternal Web Site Policy has been established as a comprehensive, multi-agency, multi-year federal partnership. The overarching mission is to address and reduce existing disparities in cervical cancer care by expediting the adoption and integration of innovative approaches for cervical cancer prevention, screening, and treatment. The partnership is working to make cervical cancer screening more equitable among geographically isolated and economically, and medically vulnerable populations.

The FCCC is a collaborative effort that brings together key federal agencies, including the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Office of Women’s Health (OWH), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Cancer Institute, NIH Office for Research on Women’s Health, HHS Office of Population Affairs in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, HRSA Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. Operating within HRSA-supported and other safety-net care environments, the FCCC aims to bridge the gaps in cervical cancer care by disseminating vital information, fostering awareness, and accelerating the implementation of effective strategies.

The Executive Summary and report below summarize the findings of a landscape analysis describing the facilitators and barriers to effective cervical cancer screening in low-resource settings and for impoverished populations.
