Protect people from tobacco smoke

Course Description

This training addresses the background and rationale for smokefree environments and shares best practices and lessons learnt from the successful implementation of comprehensive smokefree legislation around the world. Topics cover obligations under FCTC Article 8, development of smokefree legislation, engagement of civil society and public support, working with media, countering tobacco industry arguments and tactics, and implementation strategies to ensure high compliance with legislation.

Participants learn how to apply these lessons in the contexts of their own jurisdictions, including developing action plans to adopt, implement and enforce smokefree laws.

The Union has developed a separate training for countries that have advanced their tobacco control laws to the implementation stage. Details of course offerings in smokefree implementation and enforcement are listed separately.
