  • Preventing the initiation of tobacco use among young people
  • Promoting quitting among young people and adults
  • Eliminating nonsmoker's exposure to second hand smoke (SHS)
  • Identifying and eliminating the disparities related to tobacco use and its effects among different population groups.
