The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health welcomes submissions for a Special Issue of the journal. This Special Issue will focus on tobacco control in priority groups.
Rates of tobacco use are higher in some populations and communities than in others. In many countries, smoking rates are now significantly higher in more disadvantaged than in affluent areas. Particular challenges also remain in reducing smoking amongst people with mental health problems, pregnant women, prisoners, and, in some countries, in aboriginal or minority ethic groups. Important gender differences also exist in tobacco use in some countries, and use of different types of tobacco products (oral vs. smoked tobacco, for instance) means alternative approaches may be needed. Finally, tobacco harm reduction offers promise as an important element of tobacco control in some countries, with new nicotine containing devices providing opportunities to replace the use of cigarettes in some populations. This Special Issue welcomes articles on these and other themes relating to tobacco control in priority groups.
