Evaluating possible game-changing solutions for preventing and controlling tobacco use

The purpose of this project is to identify, assess and disseminate new ideas to stimulate activities in tobacco control and prevention. Although reducing tobacco use has been a great public health success story, rates of smoking prevalence have stalled, suggesting that advocates of tobacco control and prevention should consider new and innovative solutions and approaches. Deliverables will include: (1) research, including a literature review, to identify the best solutions, or "end-game" approaches, for tobacco prevention and control; (2) preliminary analysis of the results of the research; (3) a workshop with thought leaders in this field to debate proposed strategies and their feasibility; and (4) materials to provide information and stimulate discussion about these strategies more broadly and with diverse audiences.
