    Alaska Native Tobacco Prevention Community Toolkit

    The Alaska Native Tobacco Prevention Toolkit is for community grantees of the State of Alaska, Tobacco Prevention and Control Program and anyone who seeks to work with tribes in their journey to become tobacco-free.

    This toolkit shares resources and ideas for working within a variety of settings in tribal communities, such as health clinics and schools.  The purpose of this toolkit is to guide you through the process of how, as a grantee, you can assist a tribe, a tribal organization, or a tribal business in working towards implementation of evidence-based tobacco prevention strategies.  The toolkit was prepared by the State of Alaska Tobacco Prevention and Control Program and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) tobacco technical assistance team.

    As you work with different tribal communities or tribal organizations, you will come to understand how each one is unique and may require more or less effort as they work to establish a smokefree and tobacco-free policy.

    Alcohol Control Efforts in Comprehensive Cancer Control Plans and Alcohol Use Among Adults in the USA

    Cited from the abstract: "We reviewed alcohol control efforts in 69 comprehensive cancer control plans in US states, tribes and jurisdictions. Using the 2011 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, we assessed the prevalence of current alcohol use among US adults and the proportion of these drinkers who exceeded guidelines for moderate drinking." Results showed that "most comprehensive cancer control plans acknowledged alcohol use as a cancer risk factor but fewer than half included a goal, objective or strategy to address alcohol use. More than half of US adults reported current alcohol use in 2011, and two of three drinkers exceeded moderate drinking guidelines at least once in the past month. Many states that did not address alcohol use in comprehensive cancer control plans also had a high proportion of adults at risk."
