Who We Are
The Intercultural Cancer Council Caucus (Caucus) was established for the purpose of public policy advocacy to eliminate the unequal burden of cancer among racial and ethnic minorities and medically underserved populations in the US and its associated territories. The Intercultural Cancer Council (ICC) is the Caucus’s sole member.
The Caucus advocates for (1) increased access to clinical and prevention trials. (2) It advocates for improved quality of cancer control data, and (3) advocate for balanced funding of basic research and cancer control applications research for racial and ethnic minorities and medically underserved populations. In addition, (4) the Caucus advocates for full funding for the President’s Initiative to “eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health.”
ICC is the nation’s largest coalition of individuals and organizations, addressing cancer disparities in these communities.
