Second ICO-WHO Symposia on Tobacco Control

Current challenges for global tobacco control: electronic cigarettes

L’Hospitalet (Barcelona), July 18th, 2014

Organized by Institut Català d’Oncologia & World Health Organization

Electronic cigarettes, also called “e-cigarettes” or “e-cigs”, are the most known electronic nicotine delivery system. Interest in e-cigarettes has been growing recently among smokers, manufacturers, including leading cigarette companies, and also among tobacco control health professionals, researchers and advocates who are concerned with their various risks at the individual and public health level.

The aim of this symposium is to review the existing evidence on e-cigarettes toxicology, potential for harm from secondhand exposure to vapour and use, and their efficacy to help quit smoking. The symposium will address these and other current challenges that e-cigarettes poses for global tobacco control and review possible regulations to solve some of these challenges.
