Oregon's Tobacco Prevention and Education Program (TPEP) was launched in 1997 with a clear and simple mandate — to reduce tobacco-related illness and death. Since its inception, TPEP has been a comprehensive program, addressing the issues of tobacco use and Oregon's anti-tobacco efforts are saving lives and money.

  • Each year in Oregon, tobacco use kills nearly 7,000 people.
  • It claims more lives than motor vehicle crashes, suicide, AIDS, and murders combined.
  • Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death in Oregon and the nation.
  • Tobacco use costs Oregonians almost $2.4 billion annually - a staggering financial burden - of particular concern at a time of serious economic difficulties in the state.
