Creator:

Callinan, J. E., Clarke, A., Doherty, K. and Kelleher, C.

Subject Keywords: Review to evaluate the effectiveness of smoking bans on smoking behaviour and exposure to secondhand smoke at the macro, meso and micro levels and on whether the imposition of a smoking ban or restriction has an impact on the health of those affected by them
Topic: Chronic Conditions
Type: Report
Region: International (other)
Description:

Tobacco is the second major cause of death in the world, and is currently responsible for the death of about one in ten adults worldwide (WHO 2005). Measures to control the demand for and supply of tobacco products as well as to protect public health have been highlighted further through the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO 2003). In setting the parameters for this systematic review, the authors took a strict methodological approach in keeping with the Cochrane process but had to consider the nature of health promotion interventions in setting those parameters. The overall objective o this review is to assess the extent to which smoking bans or restrictions reduce tobacco consumption, smoking prevalence, exposure to secondhand smoke and health outcomes in the area affected by the ban or restriction. Primary objectives: Does the imposition of bans or restrictions reduce tobacco consumption and smoking prevalence in the area affected by the ban or policy? Does the imposition of bans or restrictions have an effect on exposure to secondhand smoke, in particular groups of people or in specific settings? Secondary objective: What effect does the imposition of bans or restrictions have on the smoking-related morbidity and mortality of those affected by the ban or restriction?
