Action on Smoking and Health was founded in 1967 and from its inception worked to prohibit cigarette commercials; ban smoking on planes, buses, and in many public places; and fight to reduce the toll of tobacco on society. There has been great progress since ASH began its mission, but much more needs to be done.
While smoking rates in the U.S. have declined and many nonsmokers can enjoy public places without being exposed to secondhand smoke, globally the tobacco epidemic is worse than ever. ASH is preparing for the next phase in the fight against the tobacco industry, which will include new programs, new strategies, and an updated website in 2012.
