Legislative Responses to Tobacco Use

This book represents an important and timely element in WHO's efforts to combat the world smoking epidemic. It contains a selection of national laws, regulations, and other legislative instruments that have been enacted by countries and subnational jurisdictions to combat smoking (and other forms of tobacco use). Most of the texts originally appeared in the WHO quarterly journal, the International Digest of Health Legislation.
The scope of the legislation contained in this volume is broad indeed. It covers such aspects as: control of advertising, sponsorship, and other forms of sales promotion; health warnings; control of harmful substances in tobacco products; restrictions on smoking in public places, public transport, and the workplace; anti-smoking programmes directed to children and adolescents; fiscal and economic measures; and institutional mechanisms for policy development and coordination.
Readers will be interested to learn that WHO will shortly be publishing a comprehensive update of Roemer's Legislative Action to Combat the World Smoking Epidemic (published by WHO in 1982 in English, French and Arabic editions).
