Tobacco Control Program

The MDCH Tobacco Control Program works to reduce and eliminate tobacco-related deaths and diseases in Michigan through leadership, collaboration and education. Our staff and partners are dedicated to:
  • eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke in worksites and public places;
  • reducing smoking-related illnesses among Michigan residents, especially children;
  • preventing youth initiation and access to tobacco products;
  • increasing and promoting accessible and affordable cessation services; and
  • identifying and eliminating disparities specific to race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, occupation, geography, gender, and sexual orientation.
