IPH launch ‘Smoke-free spaces on the island of Ireland - Snapshot Report 2016’

Reducing second-hand smoke (SHS) exposure has become a central component of tobacco control policies across the island of Ireland.  The expansion of smoke-free spaces directly reduces exposure of children and adults and further denormalises tobacco use in a variety of social contexts.  Challenges still remain in terms of persistent inequalities and significant exposure to SHS in the home, particularly in the context of children.  This snapshot report presents a brief overview of progress on the development of smoke-free spaces on the island of Ireland.
