We are organizing a Special Issue on the “Current status in tobacco control policies” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
Tobacco kills 8 million people globally and 1 billion people will die of tobacco by the turn of this century. Worldwide, current tobacco control policies are in a state of flux across several nations and in vulnerable population settings. Many high-income nations in Europe and in North America have made significant progress in implementing the “best buys” of the WHO tobacco control MPOWER policies. However, there are high-, middle-, and low-income nations who have yet to implement the FCTC guidelines in their entirety. This Special Issue will aim to highlight populations and nations which are in different stages of tobacco control policies in light of FCTC guidelines. This Issue will also compile some “best practice” case studies that point to successful strategies on both the supply and demand sides of tobacco. Researchers involved in tobacco control policies currently in operation or being evaluated in specific population settings, such as prisons, mental hospitals, nursing homes, public housing, parks, beaches, and playgrounds are also encouraged to submit their work.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the current status of tobacco control policies across different population settings and nations. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
Disclaimer: We will not accept research funded in part or full by any tobacco companies in this Special Issue. For more details, please check: https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/1660-4601/15/12/2831/htm.
