Commitment to Action

Healthcare Alliance for Tobacco Dependence Treatment

Commitment by

John H. Noseworthy, Mayo Clinic

In 2010, the Mayo Clinic School for Continuous Professional Development and the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center committed to create and mobilize global and regional networks of healthcare providers and organizations dedicated to advancing effective tobacco dependence treatment and advocating for effective tobacco control policy. These networks, known as 'Global Bridges,' bring together health care providers with complementary expertise, build awareness about the harms of tobacco use, enhance access to state-of-the-art training in treatment of tobacco dependence, adapt to regional needs, and increase the pace and application of training throughout each of the World Health Organization's six regions. The ultimate goal of the project is to increase global capacity to treat tobacco dependence and a reduction in tobacco use.
