This CDC brief summarizes the scientific evidence on comprehensive tobacco control programs. Commercial tobacco use continues to impose a significant health and financial burden on individuals, health care systems, and society. Scientific evidence shows that prevalence of smoking among adults and youth has declined faster as spending for tobacco control programs has increased. This shows that there should be sustained implementation of comprehensive tobacco control programs at CDC recommended funding levels.
