Navigating change: leading with impact

Dublin, Ireland. 9-11 March 2021

The 18th World Conference on Tobacco or Health (WCTOH) will meet under the theme ‘Navigating change: leading with impact’. 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.

WCTOH is the leading global event, where participants more than 100 countries share best practices in tobacco control to turn research into action and policy change.

Join us in Dublin in March 2021.
