The ACS NRTCC is a coordinated effort that will accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer primarily by addressing health disparities. We engage key organizations to create the national roadmap for cervical cancer elimination. This roadmap addresses issues across the cancer continuum from prevention through survivorship. We aim to reduce barriers to care, eliminate disparities, reduce harms, and promote new technologies that reduce both morbidity and mortality of cervical cancer for everyone.
The ACS uses the collective impact model as a framework that supports the evaluation of its Roundtable model. The definition of collective impact is a network of community members, organizations, and institutions who advance equity by learning together, aligning, and integrating their actions to achieve population and systems-level change. The collective impact model has five key components: the common agenda, shared measurement, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and backbone support.
The ACS, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), launched its first roundtable, the ACS National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, in 1997. Since then, ACS has worked with partners to establish the ACS National HPV Vaccination Roundtable (2014), the ACS National Lung Cancer Roundtable (2017), and the ACS National Navigation Roundtable (2017). In October 2022, the ACS launched our newest roundtables in response to the Biden Administration’s Cancer Moonshot, the ACS National Breast Cancer Roundtable and the ACS National Roundtable on Cervical Cancer.
The ACS is a member organization of the roundtable and provides backbone support to the ACS NRTCC, meaning ACS provides organizational leadership, resources, and expert staff needed to convene and coordinate participating organizations to align the work of the group.
As the backbone organization ACS is responsible for:
In response to President Biden’s relaunch of the Cancer Moonshot, and the 2022 President’s Cancer Panel Report, the American Cancer Society (ACS) enthusiastically accepted the charge to launch the American Cancer Society National Roundtable on Cervical Cancer (ACS NRTCC). The Report called for prioritized equitable access to the prevention, screening/early detection, and diagnosis of cancer, with a strong focus on screening and on health equity.
