ABSTRACT:
Tobacco control is a global activity which can be fueled by joining local and global efforts. Within this presentation we outline the activities that are being performed to strengthen tobacco control in Central and Eastern European region countries. Such activities rest on three pillars. Firstly, through educational activities such as conferences and capacity building events. Secondly through the participation in joint research projects including EUREST-PLUS and EPACTT, two projects that span more than 17 Central and Eastern European Countries and have provided evidence based tobacco control measures and thirdly, the role of communication across and between European Region countries in the form of “train the trainer” programmes.
