Protection from exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke

Policy recommendations on second-hand smoke

A small working group of recognised experts in the field of tobacco control met in Montevideo, Uruguay. I was pleased to be included in that prestigious gathering.  For a week, we thrashed out the evidence and ideas and reached conclusions. For the next year, we wrote and edited the results of that intense week. I was part of the editing team who finalised the publication.

My participation – Information and opinion contributor
