Building blocks for tobacco control: a handbook

WHO's Tobacco Free Initiative (TFI) has published a handbook to address the practical elements of various tobacco control measures. This is the first document to comprehensively address how to build tobacco control capacity at the national level. Conceived as a “How to” manual, the approach is intentionally pragmatic. It addresses "real world" issues and provides practical advice for setting up viable national tobacco control programmes.
