Compadres for Tobacco-Free Los Angeles County is a program funded by California Tobacco Control Program (CTCP) which is a program of the California Department of Public Health. CTCP is the longest running, most comprehensive tobacco control program in the nation.
The goal of the Compadres for Tobacco-Free Los Angeles County Project is to eliminate tobacco-related disparities and increase health equity among the Hispanic/Latinx priority population in Los Angeles County through a regional approach.
The project is a partnership with Los Angeles County Office of Education's Friday Night Live and Health Outreach Program, the American Lung Association in California, and Worksite Wellness L.A.
The Compadres for Tobacco-Free Los Angeles County Project will work in several jurisdictions throughout the region to advance local policy, systems, and environment changes in the retail, multi-unit housing, education, and health care campus environments in order to reduce smoking prevalence, reduce exposure to secondhand and thirdhand smoke.
