18th World Conference
on Tobacco or Health

Dublin, Ireland. 9-11 March 2021

Join us at the 18th World
Conference on Tobacco or Health

The 18th World Conference on Tobacco or Health (WCTOH) will meet in Dublin under the theme ‘Navigating change: leading with impact’. WCTOH is the leading global event for sharing best practices in tobacco control from more than 100 countries; and for inspiring more than 2,000 delegates to turn research into actions for policy change.

With eight million preventable deaths each year caused by the marketing and interference tactics of the tobacco industry, the conference will examine successful interventions for navigating a changing global and national landscape.

A multi-disciplinary and interactive programme will transform the debate over challenges by showing how best practices can be used for reaching health and development goals while at same time protecting policy gains from tobacco industry interference, and protecting the human right to health.

Join us in Dublin from 9-11 March 2021.
