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.
