Fact sheets available for download


The first ever American Samoa Comprehensive Cancer Control fact sheet series is intended to help program planners establish baselines and evaluation indicators for activities contributing to the Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan.  The fact sheets are also useful in determining priority areas, target populations and in providing justification to funders when developing proposals.

The fact sheets are a summary of the most current data related to:


  • -          Cancer incidence and prevalence
  • -          Cancer beliefs
  • -          Cancer screening barriers and predictors
  • -          Tobacco use
  • -          Overweight and obesity
  • -          Nutrition
  • -          Physical activity


This series represents our current knowledge base which is always evolving.  If you have any feedback or questions or if you would like to contribute information for future fact sheets please email Sara Krosch at amsamccn@gmail.com.
