Tobacco Free Initiative Programme

Contains papers and photographs from the Tobacco Free Initiative Programme.

In 2002, the World Health Organisation, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean (EMRO) commissioned the International Centre for Drug Policy (ICDP) at St George's, University of London to deliver a comprehensive training programme on tobacco free initiatives for senior medical practitioners and senior advisors in public health and tobacco programmes from the Middle Eastern countries.

The overall aim of the Programme was to enhance knowledge of the participants in a range of skills and interventions relating to tobacco free initiatives including smoking cessation and to provide them with resources to reduce smoking prevalence and related diseases within their home countries. Each programme was designed to reflect the specified learning needs of the participants as advised by EMRO and was structured around four broad themes made up of relevant sessions, each with learning aims:

· An introduction and overview of smoking and health
· National Policy, Strategy and Programmes
· Service Development
· Service Level Interventions

Trends in Volatile Substance Abuse (VSA)

Contains reports on Trends in Volatile Substance Abuse (VSA). This work was transferred to ICDP in c.2009.

The scope of the work was to provide a basis for policy makers and professionals to assess the effectiveness of interventions intended to address the problem of VSA. ICDP was required to publish an annual statistical summary of data in trends in deaths associated with the deliberate inhalation of volatile substances.

The reports include data on the numbers of death associated with volatile substance abuse, broken down by age, gender, local authority area of residence, substance abused and method of administration. They also include commentary on trends in data and key findings.
