About the previous ECToHs:
6th ECToH: the 6th European Conference on Tobacco or Health took place in 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey.
It was hosted by the Turkish Association for Cancer Research and Control, in collaboration with the National Coalition Against Smoking of Turkey.
The 6th ECToH was a great success and drew 500 participants from all over Europe and beyond. See the excellent programme here.
A highlight of the Conference is the Tobacco Control Scale 2013 ranking how countries are doing in the progress against tobacco, by Luk Joossens and Martin Raw, which can be downloaded here.
