The study assessed how and to what extent State tobacco control programs facilitate progress on tobacco- related health outcomes following the passage of a state-wide comprehensive smoke free law. The evaluation highlighted the initiatives and strategies employed by four high-performing tobacco control programs after the passage of a comprehensive smoke-free air law.
State tobacco control programs were able to sustain tobacco control efforts and improve tobacco-related health outcomes following the passage of the smoke-free air law. Systemic infrastructure is essential to public health achievements. Individual public health program infrastructure feeds into this larger system. The Component Model of Infrastructure was developed using data from this project as well as data from a literature review, previous case study in oral health, and data from 14 other tobacco programs through other projects.
