Abstract

Partners identified the following strengths and challenges of New York’s tobacco control program:

• The experience and leadership of the DOH; TCP Director was a major strength of the program.

• Clean indoor air efforts throughout the state were also a strength.

• Partners were concerned about the security of funding due to the large state and city budget deficits.

• The highly politicized DOH environment and slow grant process were viewed as barriers to the program.

• Little support from state policymakers and the influence of the tobacco industry made implementing a comprehensive program challenging.
