ARCC is pleased to help disseminate the new CCS report Advancing Health Equity Through Cancer Information and Support Services: Report on communities that are underserved.
In 2019, the Canadian Cancer Society carried out the underserved communities project to identify communities that face barriers to accessing cancer information, support and practical services. The purpose of this project was to understand gaps, barriers and challenges faced by these communities and outline opportunities and tactics to address them, to ensure all people in Canada can access our cancer information, support and practical services. The report, which includes the findings from this project, is intended to share key learnings with organizations that support underserved communities through cancer information and support services and to guide CCS’s own engagement efforts, programs, and resources.
In addition to the report, there is a one-page summary and infographic available. Visit cancer.ca/HealthEquity to learn more about how CCS is advancing health equity across our mission work and our vision for working with communities over the next 5 years. Special thanks to the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer for its support and funding, which enabled CCS to undertake this innovative work.
