Utah Tobacco Prevention and Control Program
The Tobacco Prevention and Control Program (TPCP) at the Utah Department of Health and its partners, use comprehensive strategies to reduce tobacco use and tobacco-related disease and death. Our primary goals are to help tobacco users quit, prevent youth from starting to use tobacco, protect Utahns and visitors to the state from secondhand smoke, and to eliminate tobacco-related disparities. Our primary focus is on developing strategies and implementing activities that will prevent the use of tobacco altogether and at the same time implementing and supporting activities that will control or alleviate the negative health effects of direct use or the indirect exposure to tobacco.
