The focus of CTP is on protecting America’s youth, providing information to help educate consumers, ensuring industry complies with the law, reviewing products, and conducting leading cutting-edge tobacco and nicotine-related research.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Office on Smoking and Health has published an updated Best Practices User Guide: Youth Engagement in Tobacco Prevention and Control. The guide was written in partnership with the Center for Public Health Systems Science at Washington University in St. Louis.
