Tobacco control has always been and will always be a main priority for actions at ECL.


ECL has the permanent responsibility of organising the European Conferences on Tobacco or Health (ECToH), which take place every two to three years and hosted by an ECL member in Europe.


6th ECToH: the 6th European Conference on Tobacco or Health will take place in 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey.
It will be hosted by the Turkish Association for Cancer Research and Control, in collaboration with the National Coalition Against Smoking of Turkey.

The Patient Support Working Group has been active in ECL since 2007 and is currently made up of participants from the Faroe Islands to Turkey and Ireland to Italy.

The group and subgroups are chaired by volunteers from our member leagues and the ECL secretariat plays a supporting role in organising meetings, linking members with the relevant EU institutions and sharing health policy information.

Supporting patients, especially via the Patient Support Working Group (PSWG), is one of the most important areas of work for ECL!


The current working areas for the Patient Support Working Group are:

1. Employment and cancer patients
