PPHF: Consortium for Tobacco Use Cessation Technical Assistance financed by solely by Prevention and Public Health Funds

The purpose of this program is to develop a consortium for tobacco use cessation technical assistance.

The aim of the cessation consortium is to provide technical assistance to state tobacco control programs and other partners by translating the science of tobacco control cessation into public
health action to further increase the rate of cessation among tobacco users in the United States.

The funded organizations will accomplish this by providing technical assistance to state tobacco control programs and other partners to (1) promote comprehensive cessation strategies for state tobacco control programs, (2) enhance state quitline capacity, (3) promote comprehensive cessation coverage, and (4) promote health systems change.

Tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the United States.

More than half of smokers attempt to quit each year, but only 4-7% succeed.

Evidence-based cessation treatments, including individual, group, and telephone counseling and seven FDA-approved cessation medications, exist, but are underutilized.

This program is intended to increase the number of quit attempts and successful quit attempts, thereby increasing cessation and reducing tobacco use.
