ITC and the Four Countries summary
10:00 - 10:15
Evidence, Policy and Research
An extraordinary natural experiment is going on worldwide given the different regulatory frameworks in place for e-cigarettes. The International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation Project (ITC), set up originally to evaluate the implementation and impact of tobacco control policies, has adapted to be able to now also examine the impact on smoking, vaping and nicotine use of e-cigarette policies as well. Prof. Borland will focus in particular on how Australia, which prohibits nicotine vaping products, and Canada, which recently liberalised their e-cigarette policies, are faring compared with England and the US. He will examine issues such as patterns of e-cigarette use and smoking, accessibility, and impact across the four countries.
