ABSTRACT:
One of the main goals of public health research is to inform health-related policies. Over the past decades, tobacco control policies have been supported by robust evidence generated by research. However, decisions on tobacco control policies are not always taken based on available evidence. Other factors such as the population’s attitudes, tobacco industry lobbying and socioeconomic considerations may influence policy decisions. This talk will explore the role of research in supporting evidence-based tobacco control both in the past and within the current context in Europe and beyond.
