Many key players in tobacco control


Twelve lessons from tobacco

  • Address the issue of individual responsibility versus collective/environmental action early and often

  • Evidence of harm is necessary but not sufficient to motivate policy change

  • Decisions to act need not wait for evidence of the effectiveness of interventions


Twelve lessons from tobacco

  • The real and perceived needs and concerns of developing countries need to be addressed even if they involve going beyond the initial scope of the risk being addressed

  • The more comprehensive the package of measures considered, the greater the impact

  • Broad-based, vertical and horizontal coalitions, well networked, are key


Twelve lessons from tobacco

  • Media-savvy individual and institutional leadership matters

  • Change in support for tobacco control took decades of dedicated effort by all

  • Modest, well-spent funds can have a massive impact. But without clear goals they may not be sustainable


Twelve lessons from tobacco

  • Complacency that past actions will serve well in future may retard future progress

  • Rules of engagement with the tobacco and food industries need to be different and continually under review

  • Risk factor envy is harmful!
