Tobacco Webinar Series: New Electronic Smoking Devices - What's the Difference?

ISSUP would like to present the second session in the three-part Webinar series focusing on Tobacco Use. This Webinar asks the question 'New Electronic Smoking Devices - What's the Difference?'

Globally, 942 million men and 175 million women aged 15 or older are current smokers. Tobacco kills up to half of its users, more than 8 million people each year (WHO). Male smoking prevalence is highest in the Asian region. Over 400 million daily smokers live in China (235.9 million male daily smokers), India (90.8 million male daily smokers) and Indonesia (48.9 million male daily smokers) (IHME, GBD 2015 Tobacco Collaborators).

This series of three webinars will acquaint you with all aspects of tobacco use, prevention, and addiction treatment approaches. The focus is to raise awareness on issues around smoking, nicotine, the different “types” and substances that are used, with a view to helping young people. We would like to help people realise that smoking and all forms of tobacco use remain major public health issues.
