Gender-Responsive Tobacco Control: time for the public health community to catch up with Big Tobacco
Big Tobacco ‘gets’ gender when it comes to market segmentation, marketing and promotion. It is high time that the public health community catches up and becomes more gender-responsive.
In advance of the Eighth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP8) to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, GH5050 co-leads Sarah Hawkes and Kent Buse review the evidence on gender and tobacco use and make concrete recommendations for more gender-responsive policies in a new report on Gender-Responsive Tobacco Control. On October 2, the findings of the report will be highlighted at a side event on Gender-responsive tobacco control policies at COP8 which will be broadcast live via Action on Smoking and Health here.
