The North American Quitline Consortium (NAQC) is an international, non-profit membership organization based in Phoenix, Arizona that seeks to promote evidence based quitline services across diverse communities in North America.
Quitlines are telephone-based tobacco cessation services that help tobacco users quit. Services offered by quitlines include coaching and counseling, referrals, mailed materials, training to healthcare providers, Web-based services and, in some instances, free medications such as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). Research has shown that quitlines are highly effective in helping tobacco users quit. Due to their effectiveness and ability to reach and serve tobacco users, regardless of location, quitlines have spread quickly across North America. Today, residents in all 10 provinces and two territories in Canada, Mexico, and all 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the District of Columbia have access to quitline services.
NAQC’s membership is made-up of over 400 organizations and individuals from across North America. Members consist of organizations and individuals that provide quitline services, fund quitlines, conduct research around quitline-related topics, advance national cessation policies, and work in other areas of tobacco control. Our members enjoy professional support, educational programs, and opportunities for participation in activities to help improve quitlines.
