  • Description:
    "Because CDC is the lead federal agency for comprehensive tobacco prevention and control, a key priority for the Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) is supporting states in their efforts to preserve tobacco control capacity and infrastructure in the face of decreased funding. OSH's National Tobacco Control Program (NTCP) seeks to reduce disease, disability, and death related to tobacco use by: Preventing the initiation of tobacco use among young people; Promoting quitting among young people and adults; Eliminating nonsmokers' exposure to secondhand smoke; Identifying and eliminating the disparities related to tobacco use and its effects among different population groups. Through the coordinated efforts of the NTCP and the activities of the Sustaining States workgroup at CDC (officially known as the "Promoting Sustainable Science-Based Comprehensive State Tobacco Control Programs at CDC-Recommended Levels priority"), OSH provides technical assistance to state tobacco control programs and other partners to help maintain and increase support for essential tobacco control activities." - p. 9
