Commercial Tobacco Prevention
AIAN populations continue to suffer from commercial tobacco use and second-hand smoke despite successes seen in the U.S. over the past twenty years.
Strategy 2 aims to prevent and control commercial tobacco use amongst American Indians/Alaska Natives by implementing evidence-informed and culturally-adaptive policy, system and environmental changes. The main objectives of this strategy is to increase implementation of tobacco-free policies and to increase participation in commercial tobacco cessation interventions.
- Implement commercial tobacco-free policies within workplaces, restaurants, bars, casinos, schools, multi-unit housing, indoor and outdoor events, celebrations and gatherings.
- Provide referrals to evidence-based commercial tobacco cessation treatment, including counseling and FDA-approved medications.
- Increased number of workplaces, restaurants, bars, casinos, schools, multi-unit housing, indoor and outdoor events, celebrations and gatherings that implement commercial tobacco-free policies.
- Increased number of commercial tobacco-using patients who receive commercial tobacco cessation interventions.
