The Nordic Tobacco Project
The Nordic Welfare Centre has coordinated a nordic tobacco project, the purpose of which is to contribute to the strengthening and development of the Nordic countries’ national efforts to combat tobacco addiction.
The Nordic Tobacco Project focused on three topics which occupy the Nordic countries:
- Smoking cessation
- The importance of flavourings to the use of snus and e-cigarettes
- Smoke-free environments
The project was implemented in close cooperation with officials, practitioners, and researchers who work with tobacco issues in the Nordic region.
- A publication about smoking cessation initiatives in the Nordic countries, with examples of specific smoking cessation projects
- A report based on research which focuses on the importance of flavourings to the use of snus and e-cigarettes, with a particular focus on young people in the Nordic region
The Nordic Tobacco Project was implemented within the framework of the Nordic Arena for Public Health Issues.
