Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative

The Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative (WCC) is the state's cancer prevention and control program that promotes a healthier Wisconsin by reducing the impact of cancer.

The WCC is a unique partnership model between the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Division of Public Health. Its mission is to engage diverse public, private, and community partners to develop, implement, and promote a statewide comprehensive approach to cancer control.

The two organizations first came together through the Wisconsin Cancer Council in the early 1980s. The Wisconsin Cancer Council, the partnership arm of the Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (Wisconsin CCC Program), is a coalition of over 100 organizations dedicated to the development and coordination of the Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Program. However, in 2020 the Wisconsin CCC Program and the Wisconsin Cancer Council began operating under a single name: the Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative. Today, we continue to serve as the state's cancer prevention and control program, committed to engaging a diverse partnership to develop and implement a comprehensive and statewide approach to cancer control.
