Congratulations to Dr Jappe Eckhardt on his new article "The global impact of tobacco control policies on smokeless tobacco use: a systematic review" which has been published in the online journal The Lancet Global Health
Volume 11, Issue 6, June 2023, Pages e953-e968
Smokeless tobacco, used by more than 300 million people globally, results in substantial morbidity and mortality. For smokeless tobacco control, many countries have adopted policies beyond the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, which has been instrumental in reducing smoking prevalence. The impact of these policies (within and outside the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control) on smokeless tobacco use remains unclear. We aimed to systematically review policies that are relevant to smokeless tobacco and its context and investigate their impact on smokeless tobacco use.
