The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded grants of $22m to 26 states to provide colorectal cancer screening services for low-income sectors of the population.

The funding will be used for screening and diagnostic follow–up care, data collection and tracking, public education and outreach programmes.

It will also be used to help measure clinical outcomes, costs and the effectiveness of the programme, the government said.

The screening services will cover those aged 50–64 years with a low income who are underinsured or uninsured, the CDC said.

The awards range from $358,283 to $1.1m and awardees are expected to start screening within six months, the CDC said.
