Abstract

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and health care professionals across the State of Alaska share a vision, a mission, and specific goals for improving the health and well-being of Alaska Natives.
Vision. The shared vision is for all Alaska Natives to live healthy, tobacco-free lives. Mission. The shared mission is to provide leadership, coordinate resources, and promote efforts that support Alaska Natives in living healthy, tobacco-free lives.
Goals. The specific goals to promote this vision and mission are
- to eliminate exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke,
- to identify and eliminate disparities between population groups with regard to
attitudes toward, knowledge about, and use of tobacco,
- to promote the quitting of tobacco use among adults and youth, and
- to prevent initiation of tobacco use among youth and young adults.
CDC offers this guidance document to support users of the Alaska Native Adult Tobacco Survey (AN ATS).
