Practitioners, policy makers and researchers came together to discuss how best to play a key part in bringing an end to the tobacco-related disease epidemic on the island – ‘the tobacco endgame’ as it has become known in tobacco control circles.
Two workshops were held to build capacity in tobacco control in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The first was held in Belfast on 5th and 6th June and the second in Dublin on 9th and 10th June.
The workshops were organised by IPH and funded by the UKCRC Centre of Excellence for Public Health Northern Ireland. The workshops brought together international speakers, researchers and practitioners from the island of Ireland in the field of tobacco control. The programmes comprised a blend of key note presentations, case studies and discussion and covered from global to local policy and practice.
