31 May is World No Tobacco Day. It is organized by the World Health Organization to highlight the health and other risks associated with tobacco use, and advocate for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption.
In support of World No Tobacco Day, the Cochrane Library presents a Special Collection which highlights a selection of new or recently updated clinically relevant Cochrane Reviews that address tobacco addiction in the general population. There is free access to all reviews included. The Cochrane Reviews in this collection are maintained by the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group, and you can find more information about the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group’s work to ensure that interventions to treat or prevent tobacco addiction are supported by good-quality evidence that can inform healthcare policy at their website.
