Module 2: Evidence-Based and Promising Tobacco Control and Prevention Program Models

Rural communities are implementing different types of program models to prevent tobacco initiation and control tobacco. Implementing a rural tobacco prevention and control program involves careful planning, buy-in, and commitment from partners at all levels. The most appropriate program model may depend on the rural community's needs, the target population, available funding, and community characteristics.

This toolkit describes 14 evidence-based and promising program models for tobacco prevention and control, organized by implementation setting:

Rural programs may choose to implement multiple tobacco prevention and control models. Many rural programs combine different evidence-based and promising models and implement more than one model at the same time to meet their needs.
