Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (DHHS/CDC), Atlanta, GA.
This publication presents best practices to help states assess options for comprehensive tobacco control programs and to evaluate their local funding priorities. It draws on best practices determined by evidence-based analyses of excise tax-funded tobacco control programs in California and Massachusetts and by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's involvement in providing technical assistance in the planning of comprehensive tobacco control programs in other states with excise tax-funded programs (Oregon and Maine) and in the four states that individually settled lawsuits with tobacco companies (Florida, Minnesota, Mississippi, and Texas). Section A, "Components of Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs," focuses on (1) "Community Programs to Reduce Tobacco Use," (2)"Chronic Disease Programs to Reduce the Burden of Tobacco-Related Diseases," (3) "School Programs," (4) "Enforcement," (5) "Statewide Programs," (6) "Counter-Marketing, " (7) "Cessation Programs," (8) "Surveillance and Evaluation," and (9) "Administration and Management." Section B presents "Funding Model for All 50 States." Section C offers "Recommended Program Element Budgets, by State." An appendix presents information on the efficacy of comprehensive tobacco control programs in California and Massachusetts. (SM)
