Many health care organisations and charities are working
together to reduce the harm done by smoking. This work is often
referred to as 'tobacco control' and includes a range of activities
and initiatives intended to help smokers quit and to protect people
from the danger of second-hand smoke. It also includes programmes
to encourage people - particularly children and teenagers - not to
take up the habit in the first place.
For more information please see the tobacco section of the NHS Health Scotland website.
