Review of the Evidence for Major Population-Level Tobacco Control Interventions

Published online: 
02 May 2007

Summary

This review aimed to identify the most recent scientific evidence for the effectiveness of major population-level tobacco control interventions and to consider the findings and their implications in a New Zealand context.

It was based on searches of the peer-reviewed scientific literature but with a particular focus on “systematic reviews” ie, Cochrane Systematic Reviews (CSR) and reviews by the US Task Force on Community Preventive Services (TFCPS). The focus on the interventions was generally limited to addressing immediate determinants of smoking and current smoking behaviour rather than more upstream causes
