How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Committee accomplishes its purpose by promoting coordination among federal agencies and sharing of knowledge which leads to collaboration and possible new initiatives. The meetings cover cutting-edge topics in tobacco control and provides an opportunity for members to share updates on progress and activities in tobacco control. This avoids some duplication of efforts and also encourages collaboration within this community of subject matter experts. The meetings also provide an opportunity for the public at large to engage in discussions about tobacco control efforts at the federal level and to voice opinions and concerns in an open forum. Finally, the Committee provides recommendations to the Secretary, HHS, on tobacco control issues.
How is membership balanced?*The committee is comprised of representatives from federal agencies and five non-federal members who are physicians and scientists representing private entities involved in informing the public about the health effects of smoking. The full committee membership has female representation and geographic diversity.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Meetings are held approximately two times per year as determined by the Chair, who also approves the agenda. The meetings are relevant in that HHS serves in a leadership role for fostering the science of tobacco use prevention and control and the translation of science into action. Coordinated Departmental action in this area will support the Secretary's prevention agenda, and form the basis for public-private partnerships that address actions for reducing initiation of tobacco products, promoting cessation, and reducing exposure to secondhand smoke which will result in improved health for all Americans.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The ICSH was mandated by Congress under the authority of the Comprehensive Smoking Education Act of 1984 (Public Law 98-474–15 U.S. C. 1342(b). The Interagency Committee on Smoking and Health reports to the Secretary, through the Assistant Secretary for Health and the Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Committee advises the Secretary, HHS, the Assistant Secretary for Health, and the Director, CDC, on coordination of research, educational programs, and other activities within the Department that relate to the effect of smoking on human health, and on coordination of these activities with other Federal, State, local, and private agencies; establishment and maintenance of liaison with appropriate private entities, other Federal agencies, State and local agencies, and public agencies respecting activities relating to the effect of smoking on human health; and development of material for the Secretary’s biennial report to Congress.
