Publication of Two Guides to Address Tobacco Control

March 8, 2014

The Center for Public Health Systems Science (CPHSS), in partnership with the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium, a program of the Public Health Law Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, has published two new tobacco-control guides — one on policy strategies and another on pricing policy — that aim to give state and local communities the guidance and resources needed to move these policies forward.

The publications are designed to provide national, state and local tobacco-control partners with practical guidance on selecting and implementing evidence-based tobacco-control strategies.

“Cigarette smoking continues to be the leading cause of preventable death in this country. We must renew our efforts with the tobacco-control interventions that we know work, like tax increases and smoke-free policies.”
