Healthy People 2030 set targets to raise the percentages of adults who have colorectal cancer screenings (target 68.3%) and breast and cervical cancer screenings (target 80.3% and 79.2%, respectively) among women. While we still have time to reach these milestones—we still have several years to go—experts can use current numbers to stay on track. These measures still need to satisfy the 2030 goals. There are cancer inequalities among many different populations, including those who live in rural areas. The differences between rural and urban settings may be influenced by a variety of factors, including socioeconomics, access to care, and lifestyle. Understanding these factors can identify groups that will most benefit from interventions on the way to reaching Healthy People 2023 goals.
