Delaware Tobacco Prevention and Control Program
Tobacco use remains the number one underlying cause of premature death and disability in Delaware and the nation. The Delaware Division of Public Health works to prevent the use of tobacco products through its Tobacco Prevention and Control Program (TPCP). The TPCP collaborates with the IMPACT Delaware Tobacco Prevention Coalition, health care organizations, youth and community groups, educational organizations, grassroots networks, and state agencies. The Tobacco Program offers two programs to help smokers quit, conducts media campaigns, and funds youth-led campaigns and peer-education groups.
