Novel Tobacco Products: A Deeper Look
August 31, 2021 | 1:00 PM GMT
Novel nicotine and tobacco products such as e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products are gaining popularity worldwide, especially among adolescents and young adults. The diversity of the products, their design features and characteristics, make it hard for countries to regulate them and monitor their use in the population.
The official communique of the first Africa Conference on Tobacco Control and Development recognised that emerging tobacco products are creating new challenges for tobacco control and that there is need for robust laws to respond to these challenges. It calls for the tobacco control community to be vigilant on emerging products and adopt innovative policies and strategies to counter ever-changing tobacco industry tactics with these products.
With a considerable influx of novel tobacco products in Africa, the African Tobacco Control Alliance (ATCA) and the Africa Centre for Tobacco Industry Monitoring and Policy Research (ATIM) are organising a webinar on the subject.
