A two day conference in Edinburgh where health advocates from the UK, Europe and further afield will seek to map out the journey to a society free from the harm caused by tobacco.

Every year, on 31 May, the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners mark World No Tobacco Day (WNTD), highlighting the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption. For World No Tobacco Day 2015, they are calling on countries to work together to end the illicit trade of tobacco products. From many angles, the illicit trade of tobacco products is a major global concern, including health, legal and economic, governance and corruption.
