This report describes the situation of tobacco control and the status of tobacco control policies in the WHO European Region as of late 2006, reviews the progress made since Member States adopted the European Strategy for Tobacco Control (ESTC) in 2002 and establishes a baseline for monitoring the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in the Region. It gives an overview of tobacco use and related harm in the Region from 2002 to 2006, and of countries' policy responses and implementation of tobacco control measures in line with ESTC recommendations. The report also examines countries' policies in the light of the requirements of the WHO FCTC. Several short national, regional and subregional case studies illustrate the lessons learned and challenges faced during the policy-making process.
