HHS Framework to Support and Accelerate Smoking Cessation 2024

On Friday March 8, 2024, HHS released its new Framework to Support and Accelerate Smoking Cessation, providing unifying vision and set of common goals to help drive progress towards cessation, especially in populations and communities that experience smoking- and cessation-related disparities. It is focused specifically on supporting and accelerating the cessation of combusted tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, little cigars, and cigarillos among people of all ages. This action is part of a broader Department-wide effort to advance the Biden Cancer Moonshot goal of reducing the death rate from cancer by at least half over 25 years.
