The North Dakota Center for Tobacco Prevention and Control Policy, also known as BreatheND, is a division of the Tobacco Prevention and Control Executive Committee. In 2008, North Dakota voters passed an initiated measure requiring that a portion of the funds the state receives from tobacco settlement dollars (a portion called the Strategic Contribution Fund) is to be dedicated to reduce tobacco use through science-based tobacco prevention and control programs. The Center, along with the North Dakota Department of Health, local public health units and other partners, is charged with implementing North Dakota’s comprehensive state tobacco prevention plan: Saving Lives – Saving Money.
North Dakota’s comprehensive tobacco prevention goals are to significantly reduce tobacco use and its health and economic consequences by using policies and programs proven to keep kids from starting to use tobacco, help tobacco users quit, and protect everyone from secondhand smoke. The state’s comprehensive tobacco prevention plan, Saving Lives, Saving Money, is based on proven best practices established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
