Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tobacco use continues to be a major preventable and global cause of death and disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that internationally and annually tobacco use causes one-tenth of all adult deaths. The WHO’s 2004 Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) signed by 168 nations seeks to reverse the severe health impacts of tobacco use through higher tobacco taxes, smoke free public areas, tobacco content regulation, tobacco warning labels, anti-tobacco education efforts, restrictions on tobacco advertising, sponsorships, and promotions, tobacco cessation, and anti-smuggling provisions. Currently, what general policy, advocacy, and programmatic approaches have been utilized to induce the adoption of viable and vigorous anti-tobacco programs based on these FCTC provisions? In this special issue our featured authors will examine current progress and the viability or not of various policymaking and advocacy strategies such as de-normalization of the industry to adopt and implement effective anti-tobacco programs and policies. Also, examined and discussed will be possible effective and viable alternative anti-tobacco strategies and policies.
