Resumen

REYNALES-SHIGEMATSU, Luz Myriam; ROA-RODRIGUEZ, Reina; BARRINGTON-TRIMIS, Jessica L  y  BLANCO-MARQUIZO, Adriana. Current and emerging issues in tobacco prevention and control. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2019, vol.61, n.4, pp.436-447.  Epub 31-Mar-2020. ISSN 0036-3634.  https://doi.org/10.21149/9259.

Objectives:

To review the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control in the Americas, describe two national case studies and analyze the evidence on electronic cigarettes from a public health perspective.

Materials and methods:

Revision of the tobacco control legislation and the scientific evidence regarding electronic cigarettes.

Results:

Implementation of tobacco control policies is not homogeneous, with important advances in smoke-free environments, pictorial health warnings, and epidemiological surveillance, but challenges that remain for the implementation of a total ban of tobacco advertising, increases in tobacco taxes, and tobacco cessation programs. Tobacco industry interference is one of the main obstacles for advancing and novel products create uncertainty about their regulation.

Conclusion:

There is a need for political will for a comprehensive implementation of the Convention, with evidence-based decisions to confront challenges and to defend the achievements from tobacco industry interference.
