World No Tobacco Day 2016: Plain-packaging to protect our youth: “Progress made, challenges ahead”

The European Respiratory Society hosted a World No Tobacco Day event Plain-packaging to protect our youth: “Progress made, challenges ahead” in collaboration with the European Network for Smoking Prevention (ENSP) to highlight the research-backed benefits of plain packaging on tobacco products and to celebrate the countries who have led the way – hoping to encourage remaining countries to follow their lead.
The event took place at the European Parliament in Brussels on 31 May, 2016 and supports the theme announced by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for this year’s World No Tobacco Day campaign, which is: “Get ready for plain-packaging”. It is also timely alongside the introduction of plain packaging on tobacco products in the U.K, Ireland and France.
