TM Best Practices2007 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Office on Smoking and Health Deborah Houston McCall, MSPH NACCHO and NALBOH Project Officer (770)
TM State Investment in Tobacco Control American Journal of Public Health 2/08: Impact of Tobacco Control Programs on Adult Smoking –Peer-reviewed study examined state tobacco prevention and cessation funding levels from 1995 to –Found the greater investment states made in their state tobacco program, the larger and more rapid declines achieved in adult smoking prevalence – even when controlling for other factors.
TM State Investment in Tobacco Control Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids Response 2/08: –The researchers also calculated that if Ohio had funded its program at the levels recommended by CDC during that period, there would have been between 14,328 and 35,665 fewer smokers in the state by 2003…. –Such smoking declines would have saved between 4,585 and 11,413 lives…. –As well as between $136.1 M and $338.8 M in health care costs.
TM Updating Best Practices States requested updated guidance Cost of living has increased 30% Evidence-based reviews of specific strategies Broader range of state experience
TM Best Practices 2007 State and Community Interventions Statewide Programs Community Programs Tobacco-Related Disparities Youth (Schools and Enforcement) Chronic Disease Programs Health Communication Interventions Cessation Interventions Surveillance/Evaluation Administration/Management
TM Administration and Management Current cost parameters include: Maintain 5% of total program budget Should fund: Coordinated guidance and TA across program elements Collaboration and coordination with other state agencies in public health programs
TM Core Surveillance Systems Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System Youth Tobacco Survey Adult Tobacco Survey
TM Surveillance and Evaluation Current cost parameters include: Maintain 10% of total program budget Additional funds may be needed for: Process evaluation Local-level evaluation Specific populations
TM Cessation Interventions Sustain, expand, and promote services such as quitlines Coverage of treatment under public and private insurance Eliminating cost barriers for underserved populations Making the PHS-recommended health care system changes
TM Health Communication Interventions Health communication interventions are powerful tools to prevent initiation, promote cessation, and shape social norms. Effective messages can stimulate public support and create a supportive climate for policy change.
TM State and Community Interventions Community resources must be the foundation of sustained solutions to pervasive problems like tobacco use Making tobacco less desirable, less accepted, and less accessible Importance of grassroots support for social norm change All Prevention is Local
The National Connection for Local Public Health Implementing and Sustaining Effective Local Tobacco Control Programs Julie Nelson Ingoglia, MPH National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO)
Wednesday, June 10, 2009 National Conference on Tobacco or Health Using Tobacco Control to Alter Chronic Disease Prevention Paradigm for Local Health Departments Tobacco control demonstrated over the past 15 years how we could change social norms and behaviors that cause chronic diseases... we used a whole host of strategies such as laws, media, and changing environments where we work, play, and go to school. This same framework can be used to reduce other modifiable risk factors for chronic diseases such as poor nutrition and lack of physical activity. Poki Stewart Namkung, M.D., M.P.H. Health Officer, Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency, Santa Cruz, CA Our challenge is to make policy makers and the public appreciate the extraordinary return on investment if we create an environment dedicated to preventing chronic disease. Gary Goldbaum, MD, MPH Health Officer & Director, Snohomish Health District, Everett, WA
Wednesday, June 10, 2009 National Conference on Tobacco or Health A New Chronic Disease Prevention Paradigm for Local Health Departments Guidelines can: Fulfill the local governments statutory responsibility to address dominant health threat Assist state development and use of standard formula to allocate tobacco control funding to local health departments Engage in evidence-based tobacco control Direct leadership role articulated in Voluntary National Accreditation Standards

Role in Sustaining Tobacco Control Funding The board of health has the decision to include or exclude tobacco use prevention and control funding from a health departments operating budget Informed board of health members can utilize information provided to them by health department staff to sustain local funding Board of health members can take immediate action to sustain/increase tobacco control funding at the state level by voicing how the funding has positively affected their community
