The Oklahoma Tobacco Control Program is a group of concerned citizens representing public, private and voluntary organizations that have come together to address our state’s devastating tobacco use problem.
The program’s primary funding partners are the Oklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust, and the Tobacco Use Prevention Service of the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Additional resources are provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, voluntary organizations, tribal nations, and community-based coalitions throughout the state.
The Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) works to improve the health and quality of life for all Oklahomans through accountable programs and services that address the hazards of tobacco use and other health issues.
Established in 2000 through a voter-approved Constitutional amendment, the TSET currently funds programs, services, and research to help prevent and reduce tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases.
Tobacco Use Prevention Service
The Oklahoma State Department of Health Tobacco Use Prevention Service (OSDH) mission is to improve the health of Oklahomans of all ages and populations through community partnerships that prevent tobacco use among youth, reduce tobacco dependence, and promote smoke-free environments.
Established in 1994 through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Tobacco Use Prevention Service conducts tobacco-related surveillance, coordinates planning and communications and funds programs that reduce the burden of tobacco use in Oklahoma.
