New Guide - State Tobacco Cessation Policy

Friday, April 27, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

Partnership for Prevention is pleased to release a new resource for tobacco control leaders, advocates, and policy makers. "State Tobacco Cessation Policy – ActionToQuit Case Studies 2012” is a product of the ActionToQuit State Policy Program, launched in 2010. The guide details several states that are actively pursuing policy changes which expand access to cessation treatment and increase utilization of proven interventions. These efforts involve collaboration with partners in health systems, businesses, health plans, quitlines, and state legislatures. Partnership for Prevention’s grant program enabled the development of state affiliations and strategic activities to help states make tobacco cessation a priority.

Each funded state was charged with three tasks - develop a state alliance for tobacco cessation, sponsor a state summit for leaders and advocates, and craft a state action plan for tobacco cessation. Beyond these requirements, states had the latitude to develop objectives and choose strategic partners that best addressed their needs. Six state alliances were funded in 2010 and three more states were added in 2011. It is Partnership for Prevention’s hope that these case studies will shed light on how state advocates and alliances can seek policy solutions to advance tobacco cessation.

The case study guide is the first link on ActionToQuit’s state projects page at:
