Global tobacco control policy

(p.643) Chapter 38 Global tobacco control policy

Nigel Gray

Oxford University Press

Tobacco control policy has evolved over time and will continue to do so. To every action by the tobacco industry there has been a reaction by public health authorities and vice versa. As a result there has been a continuing struggle between those committed to market expansion (the industry) and those committed to market shrinkage (public health authorities). This chapter considers the following issues: prevention of smoking initiation; management of addiction; regulation of the cigarette, the way it is sold, its nicotine content and its emissions; protection of non-smokers from second-hand smoke; public education and control of labelling and trademarks; disincentives to purchase (tax) and restrictions on sales to minors. The chapter will summarize what is, in effect, modern comprehensive policy.
