This chapter summarizes the conclusions and recommendations from the Task Force on interventions to reduce the initiation of tobacco use, to increase tobacco use cessation, and to reduce the exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). To reduce tobacco use initiation, the Task Force recommends increasing the unit price for tobacco products, mass media education campaigns, and community mobilization. To increase the cessation of tobacco use, the Task Force recommends increasing the unit price of tobacco products, mass media campaigns, healthcare provider reminder systems, and reducing out-of-pocket client costs for effective cessation therapies. To reduce exposure to ETS, the Task Force recommends smoking bans and restrictions.
