​The report describes the cancer burden in San Francisco today, catalogs the previous work of UCSF HDFCCC scientists in San Francisco-based population research, advances a number of options to address the cancer burden, some of which are already exist. Finally, the report identifies five special task forces charged with developing an action plan for specific programs that can make a difference in the cancer burden sustained by the people of San Francisco. Population health data from the 2015 California Health Interview Survey on tobacco and alcohol use, poor diet, lack of physical activity, and other risk factors associated with cancer incidence will help inform the action plan.

SF CAN is an integrated, cross-sector collaboration launched in November 2016. It brings together the San Francisco Department of Public Health; the University of California, San Francisco; major health systems; and community coalitions to exert collective impact. Its goals are to reduce the burden of five common cancers — breast, lung and other tobacco-related, prostate, colorectal, and liver — for which there are proven methods of prevention and detection, while reducing known disparities.
