South Dakota Tobacco Control State Plan, 2015-2020

The South Dakota Tobacco Control State Plan 2015-2020 is the result of collaboration with the South Dakota Department of Health and national, state, and local partners. The five-year plan is a roadmap for success that provides direction for statewide public health initiatives, focusing in four goal areas:

  • Prevent initiation among youth and young adults
  • Promote quitting among adults and youth
  • Eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke
  • Identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities among population groups

It takes dedicated efforts among communities, schools, workplaces, tribes, healthcare settings and many other partnerships to reduce the burden of tobacco use in South Dakota. Working together, we can build a safer, healthier state.
