Abstract

Literally, Public Law 99-252 (otherwise known as the Comprehensive Smokeless Tobacco Health Education Act of 1986) includes provisions that are informational in nature. Implicitly, however, this law is considered part of the federal effort in disease prevention and health promotion. This paper reviews the societal and legislative context of that act and presents a plan to evaluate the impact of this law on decreasing smokeless tobacco use. The uniqueness of this plan is its incorporation of nine disciplinary perspectives in the derivation of indicators to measure process, impact, and outcome measures for decreasing smokeless tobacco use. A basic prevention strategy is suggested by this interdisciplinary approach. In addition, specific lessons could be applied from the history of successes in public health to decreasing smokeless tobacco use.
