The Washington State Tobacco and Vapor Product Prevention and Control Program, Gay City Health Project and the Rede Group have been working with stakeholders over the past several months to identify strategic priorities for Tobacco and Vapor Product Prevention & Control in Washington State. Click here to view the draft priorities that were developed based on the input of stakeholders across the state through a series of interviews, small group discussions and a prioritization session. The next step is to collect comments and feedback on these priorities.
Comments will be accepted through Wednesday, February 12, 2020
There are multiple ways you can provide your feedback on these proposed strategies:

Three important items for all reviewers
- Items in this draft of strategies and tactics must be prioritized and some may be removed in the final plan if they are not deemed (by the larger group) essential and timely. In reviewing this plan, consider which items are most important to you and your community. Ask yourself, if we could only accomplish three things as a commercial tobacco and vapor product prevention and control community, what would those three things be?
- This set of strategies and tactics is meant to provide the strategic direction for the entire tobacco and vapor product prevention and control movement in Washington; it is not a workplan for the state tobacco and vapor product prevention and control program. If there are critical items that fall outside the purview or capacity of government, they will need to be led by another agency.
- Once the strategic direction is finalized, groups will need to work together to delineate work plans, including identifying lead agencies for each strategy and tactic. The state tobacco and vapor product prevention and control program will act as a convener for discussions to assist in developing workplans.
