NAQC Newsroom: Tobacco Control

CDC OSH National Networks!

Wednesday, December 11, 2013  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The Center for Disease Control’s Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) and Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) are partnering to support a consortium of national networks to advance commercial tobacco use prevention and cancer prevention. The effort focuses on populations experiencing tobacco-related and cancer health disparities. This program is intended to enhance the quality and performance of specific public health programs, public health data and information systems, public health practice and services, public health partnerships, and public health resources that focus on tobacco-related and cancer health disparities in specific populations. This five-year project expands the current national network model to increase capacity and infrastructure to address health disparities identified by CDC's National Tobacco Control Program (NTCP) and National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP).
