Key Initiatives

​Tobacco-Free Mecklenburg

Mecklenburg County's Tobacco Prevention and Control team promotes culturally appropriate and best practice strategies to reduce deaths and health problems due to tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke or e-cigarette aerosols. All residents in our community deserve a healthy home, workplace and community where tobacco use is no longer the social norm.

Our initiatives focus on four goals:

  1. Eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke and e-cigarette aerosols through tobacco-free environments.
  2. Ensure that tobacco users are connected with resources to help them quit and building capacity for evidence-based tobacco treatment.
  3. Prevent youth initiation of tobacco use.
  4. Address tobacco-related disparities in populations with higher tobacco use rates.
