North Dakota Center for Tobacco Prevention and Control Policy (BreatheND)

  • Project Title: North Dakota's Comprehensive Tobacco Prevention Program
  • Program Representative Interviewed: No contact; program ended in 2017
  • Location: Bismarck, ND
  • Program Overview: The North Dakota Center for Tobacco Prevention and Control Policy, also known as BreatheND, was created in 2008 after voters passed a ballot measure to fund tobacco control and prevention programs with a portion of revenue from the Master Settlement Agreement (a portion called the Strategic Contribution Fund). BreatheND was successful in disseminating tobacco prevention media messages and promoting tobacco-free policies throughout the state.

    BreatheND also supported tobacco cessation and prevention in rural communities by working closely with local public health units. For example, BreatheND developed model smoke-free policies and anti-tobacco messaging. This program ended in 2017.
