Description:
Across the world there is a growing awareness of the enormous problems associated with tobacco addiction and the need for concerted responses from legislators. In the first event of its kind in Ireland international experts, politicians and policy makers came together to share their experience of initiatives aimed at tackling the tobacco epidemic. The conference featured presentations by those directly involved in developing and administering a legislative response to this pandemic. Eminent speakers from the USA, Australia, Canada, Finland, Poland, Scotland, UK and Ireland dealt with the many facets of tobacco control and tobacco use in different parts of the world as well as at global and European levels. Smoking not only endangers the health of smokers themselves, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) or passive smoking is a significant threat to the health of others. Speakers with experience in developing successful prevention strategies discussed the dangers of ETS and demonstrated the benefits of protective measures.
