WHO Report on the Global Tobacco Epidemic, 2009: Implementing smoke-free environments

The report is the second in a series that tracks the status of the tobacco epidemic and the impact of the interventions that are being implemented to stop it.

The report provides a comprehensive overview of the evidence base for protecting people from the harms of second-hand tobacco smoke through legislation and enforcement. There is a special focus on the status of implementation of smoke-free policies, with detailed data collected for the first time ever on a global basis at both the national level and for large subnational jurisdictions. Additional analyses of smoke-free legislation were performed, allowing a more detailed understanding of progress and future challenges in this area.
