The National Breast & Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program

July 29, 2021

For 30 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) has decreased disparities in breast and cervical cancer deaths.

The NBCCEDP is the only nationally organized cancer screening program for breast and cervical cancer for underserved people in the U.S.
