EMHJ special issue on tobacco use in the Eastern Mediterranean Region

emhj-26-1

Every year, 8 million people die from tobacco. The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) was developed in response to the globalization of the tobacco epidemic, and contains measures to reduce the demand for tobacco as well as reducing its production, distribution, availability and supply. It came into force in 2005, and 15 years, we have taken stock of the progress, reviewed the practices, and highlighted the gaps and the challenges facing tobacco control in the Eastern Mediterranean Region through this EMHJ tobacco special issue. All those with an interest in tobacco control can use this special issue to strengthen tobacco control knowledge, policy, practice and education, as well as support tobacco control policy decision-making and enable researchers, practitioners and professionals to remain well informed of developments in tobacco control.
