Community Partnerships shall promote a wide range of activities that discourage tobacco use and support tobacco/nicotine-free environments. Some of these activities include developing coalitions with local organizations and encouraging policies that support tobacco use prevention and cessation. A strong Community Partnership is one that will utilize broad community involvement within each county served.

IDPH follows Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) guidelines for comprehensive National Tobacco Control Programs. State-level initiatives addressing those guidelines include Quitline Iowa cessation services, youth tobacco-use prevention programming, enforcement of Iowa’s Smokefree Air Act and enforcement of laws prohibiting tobacco sales to minors.
