Tobacco Use Prevention and Control Program
The Tobacco Use Prevention and Control (TUPAC) program and its partners use a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to promote healthy lifestyles that are free form tobacco abuse and addiction among all New Mexicans. TUPAC follows recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Our mission is to improve lives by eliminating the harm from tobacco abuse through the implementation of effective strategies that incorporate an anti-oppression model.
TUPAC works with communities, schools, and organizations across the state to implement activities and services that decrease the harmful and addictive use of commercial tobacco, outside of its traditional, sacred or ceremonial purposes. This will reduce tobacco-related illness, save lives and save money.
