The County Durham Tobacco Control Action Plan was approved by the County Durham Health Improvement Partnership in October 2013.
The plan is a five year interim plan from 2013 to 2017 that aspires to reduce smoking prevalence each year by 1%. The County Durham Tobacco Control Action Plan supports two of the County Durham Strategies.
The Smokefree Tobacco Control Alliance for County Durham brings together partners from across the county to work together to implement action locally. It will use the Clear Thinking approach as a driver. The alliance is joint chaired by Councillor Audrey Laing, Support Member for Councillor Lucy Hovvels (Safer & Healthier Communities) Durham County Council and Anna Lynch Director of Public Health County Durham.
The alliance must deliver on all key strands.
