NUPAC Mission Statement

To improve lives by eliminating the harm from tobacco use and nicotine addiction using an anti-oppression framework and effective strategies that reach, involve, and mobilize individuals, organizations, and communities to develop policies, systems, and environmental norms that support nicotine-free lives.

About the NUPAC Program

The Nicotine Use Prevention and  Control Program (NUPAC) of New Mexico and its partners use a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to promote healthy lifestyles that are free from tobacco abuse and addiction among all New Mexicans. NUPAC follows recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

NUPAC 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. Activities that encompass this comprehensive approach include:

  • Community-based programs
  • School tobacco policy
  • Cessation services
  • Public awareness and education campaigns
  • Initiatives to reduce health disparities
