Tobacco Free Initiative (TFI)

Smoke-free policies

Growing evidence of the harmful impact of exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke raises the need for establishment of smoke-free environments. Bans of smoking in public places can protect non-smokers from environmental tobacco smoke and reduce consumption. Experience in some countries demonstrates that comprehensive smoke-free legislation is essential to ensure that all members of the community can enjoy smoke-free public places and workplaces.

Studies on smoke-free policies in Brazil, USA, Finland, Oman, Syria and Iran will be published soon.
