Tobacco-Use Prevention and Control

Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the United States. NACCHO collaborates with national, federal, state, and local organizations to provide local health departments with the resources they need to reduce tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke in their communities.

Resources and support cover a range of issues, including tobacco cessation, prevention of youth initiation, secondhand smoke prevention, electronic smoking devices and other emerging products, public smoking ordinances, tobacco retailer assessment and licensing, smoke-free housing, and more.
