WHO European country profiles on tobacco control 2003



The WHO European Country Profiles on Tobacco Control 2003 covers a wide spectrum of indicators on tobacco use and tobacco control policies in the WHO European Region. It reflects the changes that have occurred since the previous publication in 2001 and presents the current status of tobacco-related information in countries. The profiles cover five main areas: smoking prevalence, legislation, economics, cessation and general policy. An important advance on the 2001 exercise is that national legislation on tobacco control has been both directly checked and crosschecked with information received from other sources.
