Eliminating Secondhand Smoke in Asian Communities


The funding creates opportunities to implement and evaluate innovative community-focused health education and health promotion interventions that will result in policy, system, and environmental changes that prevent and reduce tobacco use among groups with high rates of tobacco use.

This project by NAPAFASA aims to eliminate secondhand smoke at tribal casino bus/shuttle pick-up locations in the Asian enclave neighborhoods in Los Angeles County by using various intervention methods such as observation, public opinion surveys, key informant interviews, and education. The goal of this project is to have at least one jurisdiction (such as the City of Alhambra, City of San Gabriel, or City of Rosemead) adopt a policy prohibiting smoking at tribal casino bus/shuttle pick-up locations.

This project is funded by the California Tobacco Control Program (CTCP), California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
