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
