Joint Action on Tobacco Control 2
Tob. Prev. Cessation 2023;9(Supplement 2):A98
The Joint action on Tobacco Control 2 (JATC2) takes a Eurocentric approach to supporting Member States with harmonising the implementation of the tobacco products directive. The EU funded project brings together 21 countries, 36 institutions and over 170 tobacco control experts with the aim of strengthening the cooperation on tobacco control between Member States. JATC2s pooling of resources from multiple Member States enables the national competence authorities reap the benefits of JATC 2 research, policy recommendations and best practice strategies that would otherwise not be available to them. In this way the JATC 2 project acts as an instrument to bring together experts and unique competences with the aim of developing comprehensive research and making that research available to Member States at all levels of government and the EU commission. Over the course of 3 years JATC2 will work to: • Increased data sharing and collaborations between EU Member States on tobacco product regulatory practices. • Enhanced collaborations between EU Member States to develop sustainable policy recommendations for the expansion of smoke-free environments. • Develop a common approach on handling tobacco regulation across EU Member States, within the context of their national legislative approach and with consideration to structural setup of each Member States. • Develop comprehensive research on the applicability of Tobacco Advertising Directive. • Develop sustainable tobacco endgame strategies that are implementable for all Member States, consideration to different tobacco control contexts and capacities. • To facilitate the exchange of good practices between Member States in order to improve implementation of the Tobacco Products Directive and related implementing and delegated acts.
