National Asian Language Tobacco Use and Dependence Treatment Support System
CDC-RFA-DP20-2006: National Asian Language Tobacco Use and Dependence Treatment Support System supports the operation and promotion of a linguistically and culturally appropriate nationwide quitline service for individuals who use tobacco and who predominantly speak Chinese (including Cantonese and Mandarin), Korean, and Vietnamese (CKV) languages. Strategies and activities include: improving quitline infrastructure to ensure efficiency and capacity; enhancing quitline sustainability; leveraging and expanding reach and range of available quit support services through the quitline; conducting strategic promotional efforts to increase use of available quit support services, including the quitline; and conducting surveillance and evaluation activities for quitline services. Evidence-based interventions and strategies supported by this award align with the four National Tobacco Control Program (NTCP) goals to 1) Prevent initiation of commercial tobacco use among youth and young adults; 2) Eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS); 3) Promote quitting among adults and youth; and 4) Identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities.
The funded organization, University of California, San Diego, operates the Asian Smokers’ Quitlineexternal icon.
