FDA CTP Releases Comprehensive Strategic Plan for Next 5 Years
FDA's Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) released its comprehensive strategic plan, aiming to reduce the negative health impacts of tobacco use.

On December 18th, according to an announcement on the official website of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Brian King, the Director of the FDA Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), released a statement outlining the center's comprehensive strategic plan.


Previously, CTP responded to the evaluation conducted by the independent expert group organized by the Reagan-Udall Foundation, announcing the initiation of a brand new five-year strategic plan, which will be unveiled by the end of the year. Since then, the center has focused on the new strategic plan as its core task, actively seeking feedback from external stakeholders through public opinion surveys and hearings, in order to enhance its planning capabilities.


CTP's new strategic plan was officially unveiled today. The plan outlines how the organization will operate and manage its staff in the next five years. This strategic plan marks a new chapter for CTP, building upon the solid foundation it has established since its inception in 2009. Guided by this plan, CTP aims to reduce the adverse health impacts caused by tobacco use. This includes ensuring the regulated functioning of the market, preventing the initiation of tobacco use among the public, promoting smoking cessation among tobacco users, and minimizing the harms associated with tobacco product use.


During the development of this strategic plan, CTP also updated its vision and mission to accurately reflect its nature of work and guide future activities. These modifications emphasize the importance of CTP's public health priorities and advancing health equity. The strategic plan sets out five objectives, ten outcomes, and proposes several corresponding goals.


The CTP plans to achieve these goals and outcomes by issuing influential regulations, utilizing scientific methods for application review, implementing timely and impactful compliance and enforcement strategies, and educating the public about the risks associated with tobacco products.
