Technical advice based on the latest global and regional evidence for development of the Green Paper on tobacco control policy



In 2012 the Ministry of Social Affairs of Estonia initiated the development of a Green Paper on tobacco with the aim to develop a detailed national roadmap for tobacco control. Technical advice was requested form WHO by the Ministry of Social Affairs to complement the draft Green Paper on tobacco with recent global and regional evidence - scientific studies, guidelines, best practices, and the experiences from other countries to ensure that the proposed tobacco control measures are evidence based and to support the policymakers in the negotiation process with stakeholders by giving arguments to demonstrate the efficacy and effectiveness of tobacco control measures.
