Australia The National Tobacco Campaign (NTC) is a vital part of the Australian Government’s comprehensive range of tobacco control strategies and prevention measures, which are designed to work in concert to reduce smoking prevalence levels across Australia. State and territory governments, as well as Non-Government Organisations also run mass media campaigns in Australia. Campaigns are coordinated with each other to maximise the impact and reduce the time between bursts of activity. The following progress has been made in implementing Article 12: • the NTC ‘Don’t Make Smokes Your Story’ (the campaign) focused on Indigenous smokers, recent quitters and their families. The campaign aims to empower this audience to quit smoking and promote the use of available support services, such as the Quitline, the My QuitBuddy mobile phone application and the Campaign website; • the latest phase of this campaign ran from 25 May 2018 until 24 June 2018. The media buy included television, print, radio, digital and out-of-home advertising (train interiors, shopping centre billboards) and Indigenous-specific media channels; • the campaign evaluation conducted in July 2018 found it had a significant impact among the target audience with 86% of people surveyed reporting campaign awareness; 7% of Indigenous respondents stated they had quit as a result of seeing the Campaign (17% for non-Indigenous) and 26% had reduced the amount they smoked (29% for non-Indigenous); • during the campaign period there was a 25% increase in campaign website visits; 13% Quitline calls; and a 43% increase in My QuitBuddy downloads. The Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) program aims to prevent the uptake of smoking and supports smoking cessation among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It is a multi-component program focused on evidence-based activities and tobacco reduction outcomes. Iterations of TIS program have been in operation since 2010. • Regional Tobacco Control Grants (RTCG) – 39 organisations (almost all of which are Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services) receive RTCG funding to undertake evidence-based tobacco control activities designed to meet local needs. These include social marketing, advocacy for smoke free community spaces and workplaces, and supporting referrals to service providers. These grants cover Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in regional and remote communities, including remote areas with some of the highest smoking rates in the country. • The TIS National Best Practice Unit (NBPU) supports TIS RTCG recipients through evidence-based resource sharing, information dissemination, advice and mentoring, workforce development, and support for monitoring and evaluation. • The National Coordinator provides leadership, advocacy, advice and support to grant recipients and other stakeholders working to reduce smoking among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. The National Coordinator works closely with the NBPU TIS to complement its role in supporting grant recipients. • Enhanced data collection at the regional level. • Enhanced activities for priority groups – pregnant women, smokers in remote areas. • Indigenous Quitline enhancement provides accessible and appropriate Quitline services to Indigenous people, support enhancements to existing Quitline services including employing Indigenous staff on Quitlines, as well as cultural safety training and resources for all Quitline staff in the Quitline services across the jurisdictions. • Quitskills provides culturally appropriate brief intervention training for health workers in remote areas, including a course specifically for those working with pregnant mothers in remote and very remote areas. • A national program evaluation to assess the impact of delivering locally-tailored population health approaches to reduce smoking rates among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and to identify opportunities for improvement. The National Tobacco Campaign (NTC) is a vital part of the Australian Government’s comprehensive range of tobacco control strategies and prevention measures, which are designed to work in concert to reduce smoking prevalence levels across Australia. State and territory governments, as well as Non-Government Organisations also run mass media campaigns in Australia. Campaigns are coordinated with each other to maximise the impact and reduce the time between bursts of activity. The following progress has been made in implementing Article 12: • the current NTC ‘Don’t Make Smokes Your Story’ (the campaign) focuses on Indigenous smokers, recent quitters and their families. The campaign aims to empower this audience to quit smoking and promote the use of available support services, such as the Quitline, the My QuitBuddy mobile application and the Quitnow website; • the campaign was launched on 29 January 2017 and continued through to 25 June 2017. The media buy for this phase included television, print, radio, digital and out-of-home advertising; • a robust public relations strategy was implemented to engage with Indigenous audiences at grass roots level, including participation at the Barunga Festival, NRL and AFL games, the Laura Dance Festival and in-program television promotions such as the Marngrook Football show; • evaluation of phase one of the campaign (which commenced on 1 May 2016) was undertaken in July and August 2016 (n=310). The results showed 75% of Indigenous smokers and recent quitters were aware of the campaign. Of those exposed to the campaign, 9% stated they had quit smoking and 27% stated they intended to quit; The campaign was effective in conveying messaging to direct smokers to the quit smoking support tools, with a significant majority of respondents agreeing that the campaign directed them to take action by calling the Quitline (71%), visit the website (65%) and download the My QuitBuddy app (58%). The evaluation report for phase two was undertaken in July-September 2017 and the report will be finalised and will be made available in the first half of 2018. The Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) Program funds activities which aim to prevent the uptake of smoking and support smoking cessation among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The program aims to contribute to closing the gap in Indigenous health outcomes by reducing tobacco smoking as the most significant risk factor for chronic disease among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The TIS Program has a budget allocation of $AUD116.8 million for the three years 2015-16 to 2017-18. Funding of up to $AUD183.7 million has been approved for four years from 2018-19 to 2021-22. The Tackling Indigenous Smoking Program currently (from 2015-16 to 2017-18) comprises: • 37 targeted regional tobacco control grants for (predominantly) Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) to reach out to Indigenous communities to increase awareness of the harms from smoking and design and implement smoking prevention and cessation activities tailored to local needs; • a National Best Practice Unit (NBPU) to support the regional tobacco control grant recipients (provides tailored, one-on-one support from project planning through to implementation and evaluation, to feed back into delivery and outcome improvements); • seven innovation project research grants building the evidence base on how to better address the most difficult and critical Indigenous smoking behaviours (such as very high rates of smoking in remote areas and among pregnant women); • a National Coordinator to provide high-level advice and insight to assist in the shaping of policy and the approach for the TIS program, and practical leadership and advocacy in the national implementation of the program, having regard for traditional culture and values; • the Quitskills accredited training package delivered by Cancer Council South Australia (CCSA) which provides brief intervention and motivational training in best-practice intervention methods. Quitskills funding aims to increase the number of suitably trained and qualified professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander smokers and their communities; • Indigenous Quitline enhancement grants to the State and Territory run Quitlines to improve their capacity to provide accessible and appropriate services to Indigenous people, including enhancements for young people, pregnant women and new mothers. The funds support employment of Indigenous staff, as well as training and resources for all Quitline staff; and • a program evaluation component implemented by an external evaluator; the evaluation is being used to assess the program’s appropriateness, effectiveness, impact, and efficiency, and to inform best practice learning and continuous program improvement. Education, communication, training and public awareness are a joint responsibility of the Commonwealth Government and state and territory governments. The Commonwealth Government has provided funding for national anti-smoking campaigns to contribute to reducing smoking rates in Australia. The National Tobacco Campaign (NTC) focuses on encouraging a reduction in smoking among all adult smokers by motivating quitting attempts and supporting the quitting process. The primary target audiences for this campaign are daily smokers and recent quitters aged 18-40. The next phase of the NTC will target Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander smokers and recent quitters, with a budget of $AUD10million. The NTC features television, radio, print, outdoor and online advertising. Campaign materials are available online at www.quitnow.gov.au. In addition to national social marketing campaigns, the Commonwealth Government provides resources and information on Australia’s tobacco control initiatives on the Department of Health website at www.health.gov.au and the Quitnow website at www.quitnow.gov.au/internet/quitnow/publishing.nsf/Content/home. The Commonwealth Government has also made additional investments in national campaigns to contribute to efforts to reduce smoking rates among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the long term, as part of a balanced package of measures and in partnership with Indigenous communities. The Tackling Indigenous Smoking Programme funds activities which aim to prevent the uptake of smoking and support smoking cessation among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The programme aims to contribute to closing the gap in Indigenous health outcomes by reducing tobacco smoking as the most significant risk factor for chronic disease among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Tackling Indigenous Smoking Programme has a budget allocation of $AUD116.8 million from 2015-16 to 2017-18. The Tackling Smoking measure has established a national network of Regional Tobacco Coordinators and Tobacco Action Workers with 58 teams working across 57 regions around Australia. The workers are engaged through Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations where practicable, and reach out to Indigenous communities across each region to increase awareness of the harms from smoking and facilitate smoking prevention and cessation programs. Full training is being provided, and the tobacco workers have access to funding and materials to conduct local community-based social marketing campaigns and community events. Funding is also being provided to enhance Quitlines for Indigenous people and to train health workers seeing Indigenous patients in the use of brief interventions to support smoking cessation. State and territory governments, as well as Non Government Organisations run mass media campaigns in Australia. Campaigns are coordinated with each other to maximise the impact and reduce the time between bursts of activity. Further details of some of the mass media activity at the state and territory is detailed in C2610. WHO Western Pacific Region

WALLONIA: Wallonia has set up a " Walloon Plan without Tobacco" since 2004: this plan brings together health professionals to increase awareness, information and training of professional actors related to tobacco. Every three years, an action plan is put in place to determine the objectives and priority groups. Then, Wallonia has a legal framework to recognize and fund networks, support and specialized care in addiction services, which include tobacco-related actions; These networks coordinate activities within their local territory. Since 1 January 2016, Wallonia has also competence on the promotion and the prevention of health, all in the context of a new agency dedicated to Health, Welfare, Disability and Families: this circumstances result in the establishment of cross-cutting measures centers on the needs and expectations of citizens, including as regards tobacco. FLANDERS: School aged children remain an important target group, but in addition to primary prevention (not starting) we also developed strategies and methodologies to reach pupils and students who have already started smoking. Research indicates that a considerable proportion of this group considers stopping, and we know that, as a whole, they are not as addicted as more mature groups, so stopping is easier. They get support via online app’s, personal advice and training from professionals, as well as peer support. BRUSSELS (COCOF – COCOM) A health promotion framework 2018-2022 has been adopted by the French-speaking Government in 2017. One of the priorities addresses healthy lifestyles: promotion of healthy food, physical activity, reduction of alcohol and tobacco consumption. The strategy concerning tobacco is mainly targeting young people (11-24yo), educators, health professionals and parents in their different life or professional settings. It is based on an empowering approach including information, awareness-raising and training. Social health inequalities are taken into account in the strategy through a focus on disadvantaged population. Campaigns promoting smoking cessation are spread through local TV and radio channels thanks to a legal free of charge system of provision of health promotion ads. Since the 6th Belgian State Reform, the Common Community Commission (COCOM-GGC) is competent regarding tobacco cessation, among others concerning the funding of tobacco consultations. There was no change during the last two years concerning the policy carried out by the Common Community Commission (COCOM-GGC) in this field - this policy remains at this stage unmodified.

Colombia Una de las estrategias que se propone en el nuevo Plan Nacional de Desarrollo 2018-2022 “Pacto por Colombia, Pacto por la Equidad” en el objetivo 2 “Brindar una educación de calidad y fomentar la permanencia en la educación inicial, preescolar, básica y media”, se definió en el componente de “Todos por una educación de calidad” la línea estratégica de “Entornos Escolares para la vida, la convivencia y la ciudadanía”. Por ello, la línea estratégica de “Entornos escolares para la vida, la convivencia y la ciudadanía”, que se enfoca en el desarrollo socioemocional de la niñez y juventud de Colombia, plantea estrategias para diversos entornos en los que los que la niñez, la adolescencia y la juventud interactúa. Si bien la teoría del cambio se fundamenta en el desarrollo de las competencias en los adultos responsables de la formación de niños, niñas, adolescentes y jóvenes, también reconoce en ellos su capacidad de autoformación y de transformación de los entornos: Componentes: *Promover en el aula, en los procesos de enseñanza aprendizaje y en las interacciones cotidianas emociones para la vida, la convivencia y la ciudadanía para lo cual se hace énfasis en la necesidad de transformar las prácticas pedagógicas de los docentes, promover el cuidado y autocuidado, la educación para sexualidad, el desarrollo sostenible, mejorar los climas de aula y las competencias ciudadanas y socioemocionales para el ejercicio de los Derechos Humanos, a través de procesos de formación y acompañamiento a docentes y directivos docentes. *Fortalecer el Sistema Nacional de Convivencia Escolar, con la consolidación de la participación de los estudiantes en los procesos de convivencia, la implementación del Sistema de Información Unificado de Convivencia Escolar –SIUCE, para el reporte y seguimiento a casos que afectan la convivencia pacífica, el desarrollo de estrategias para revisar que los manuales de convivencia sean garantes de derechos y la implementación de protocolos para la prevención de situaciones que vulneran la integridad de niñas, niños y adolescentes (consumo de sustancias psicoactivas, violencias basadas en género, suicidio, intervención adecuada de la policía en entornos escolares) *Fortalecer la alianza familia - escuela: las familias son el primer referente para la niñez. Las interacciones que suceden en su entorno familiar desde la primera infancia son determinantes para los demás ciclos de vida y por ello, lo que sucede con las familias decididamente, incide en la forma como los niños, niñas y adolescentes se relacionan consigo mismos, con los demás y con el entorno, y a partir de allí construyen y consolidan sus proyectos de vida. El Ministerio trabaja en el diseño de una plataforma, un kit para familias y en procesos de fortalecimiento de capacidades para potenciar el acompañamiento, el cuidado y el autocuidado y el trabajo colaborativo de las familias con la escuela y así se fortalezcan la autonomía y toma de decisiones de la niñez y la juventud. *Promover una educación para la Ética, Ciudadanía e Historia, como acciones específicas que contribuyen al reconocimiento y fortalecimiento de estrategias para la democracia y el desarrollo del pensamiento crítico e histórico en los estudiantes. En el marco de la descentralización, todos estos componentes incluyen el fortalecimiento de capacidades de las secretarías de educación para adaptarlos a su contexto y para implementarlas en sus territorios. En este sentido, la política pública educativa para la educación preescolar, básica y media se encamina hacia el reconocimiento del rol de los docentes y directivos docentes como líderes y agentes de cambio para el avance de la calidad y el fortalecimiento de competencias para la vida. Desde la ruta de calidad, se promoverán ambientes de aprendizaje que fomenten la participación efectiva de todos los estudiantes, desde sus características individuales, a fin de garantizar condiciones propicias para aprender y favorecer las interacciones entre los distintos integrantes de la comunidad educativa. Aunado a lo anterior, el Ministerio de Educación Nacional desarrolla acciones para prevenir factores de riesgo sociales asociados a la salud mental y el consumo de sustancias psicoactivas, las cuales se trabajan a partir de estrategias como son la promoción de los estilos de vida saludable que incentivan el cuidado del cuerpo y la mente, y la promoción y cualificación de la convivencia escolar, para crear nuevas estrategias pedagógicas y didácticas de prevención que incluyan al aula, a la institución educativa y al entorno, como escenarios fundamentales para identificar los determinantes de riesgo y fortalecer los factores de protección. Articulado a la línea estratégica de “Entornos Escolares para la Vida, la Convivencia y la Ciudadanía”, estamos avanzando en: a) La socialización del módulo de formación en prevención del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas (SPA) dirigido a docentes de preescolar, básica y media, este es complementado con unas secuencias didácticas, que facilitan la labor del docente en el aula. Esta herramienta pedagógica es de utilidad para las instituciones educativas en la creación de nuevas estrategias pedagógicas y didácticas de prevención para ser integradas al aula, a la institución educativa y al entorno como escenarios fundamentales para fortalecer factores de protección. b) El diseño de un Protocolo para el abordaje pedagógico de situaciones de riesgo en la Ruta de Atención Integral de convivencia escolar. Dicho protocolo hace énfasis en el abordaje de las violencias basadas en género, la prevención del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas y de la conducta suicida en entornos escolares. c) La revisión de los documentos educativos del Programa Escolarizado de Prevención del Consumo de Drogas (DARE) y acompañamiento a la implementación del Plan Nacional de Entornos Escolares y Parques Seguros de la Policía Nacional. El Ministerio de Educación Nacional, con el apoyo de los Ministerios de Justicia y del Derecho y de Salud y Protección Social y el Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar, revisaron los siguientes manuales del instructor y sus correspondientes cartillas del estudiante del Programa Escolarizado de Prevención del Consumo de Drogas: • Manual instructor aprende jugando. • Cartilla del estudiante Aprende Jugando. • Manual del instructor Aprende a Valorarte. • Cartilla del estudiante Aprende a Valorarte. • Manual del instructor Educar y Prevenir. • Cartilla del estudiante Educar y Prevenir. • Manual del instructor Módulo para padres. d) El MEN está apoyando la reingeniería del Programa Escolarizado con el apoyo del Embajada de los Estados Unidos, la Universidad de los Andes y la Universidad de Nueva York. e) Se inició la formación de actores del Sistema de Convivencia Escolar con más de 635 rectores, docentes y padres de familia. Se cuenta con un estado del arte de los comités territoriales de convivencia escolar de las 96 secretarías de educación y 90 de ellas fueron acompañadas en el fortalecimiento de sus Comités de Convivencia Escolar. f) La incorporación en el Sistema de Información Unificado de Convivencia Escolar -SIUCE, de los siguientes módulos de reporte de casos que afectan a la convivencia escolar: h) La implementación de la Estrategia para la promoción de Estilos de Vida Saludable, incentivando el cuidado del cuerpo a través de la alimentación adecuada, la actividad física y las prácticas claves de higiene. Para esto, se diseñó una Caja de Herramientas de Estilos de Vida Saludable - con más de 75 tipos de recursos didácticos y lúdicos, en la cual se brindan orientaciones pedagógicas y didácticas para el trabajo en aula para docentes, estudiantes y familias. - Módulo para reporte de casos de consumo de sustancias psicoactivas - Módulo para reporte de casos de situaciones de acoso y ciberacoso (situaciones Tipo II) y presuntos delitos (situaciones tipo III). - Módulo para reporte de casos de embarazos en adolescentes. - Se avanzó en la puesta en marcha del Sistema de Información Unificado de Convivencia Escolar (SIUCE) en 5.500 Instituciones Educativas públicas y privadas. Como resultado 4.412 directivos docentes de establecimientos oficiales y privados se han formado. g) El diseño de un Protocolo de articulación entre la Policía Nacional y los establecimientos educativos. A la fecha, se han beneficiado 13.618 miembros de la comunidad educativa, de los cuales 12.810 son estudiantes, 115 son manipuladores de alimentos y representantes de tienda escolar y 693 son docentes y directivos docentes. Además, la Estrategia Estilos de Vida Saludables ha promovido que 483 estudiantes y docentes repliquen la experiencia, socializándola en 42 secretarías de educación. i) Fortalecimiento en competencias ciudadanas y socioemocionales, a través del proceso de formación realizado a formadores del Programa Todos Aprender, con la implementación y diseño de 4 ciclos de formación para el 2019. Este proceso se dirige a 2.664 establecimientos educativos -EE- en zonas rurales. Los ciclos implementados se centran en los siguientes aspectos: Ciclo I: Conceptualización de competencias ciudadanas y socioemocionales. Ciclo II: Reconocimiento de los diferentes estilos docentes y análisis de su propia práctica pedagógica. Ciclo III: Fortalecimiento del estilo docente en cuanto a la estructura de clase y cuidado en las relaciones, para incorporar las competencias ciudadanas y socioemocionales desde su quehacer pedagógico. Ciclo IV: Aportar estrategias para la planeación de aula para el desarrollo de competencias ciudadanas y socioemocionales en el marco de la Educación Inclusiva. j) Capacitación en competencias ciudadanas y socioemocionales a facilitadores que acompañan 118 Establecimientos Educativos-EE- rurales de jornada única, a través del convenio MEN- Organización de Estados Iberoamericanos -OEI- k) Definición del Convenio con la Organización Internacional para las Migraciones -OIM- para la formación y acompañamiento situado a 134 EE rurales para fortalecer competencias ciudadanas y Socioemocionales. (1000 docentes de 19 municipios PDET). l) El MEN viene apoyando al Ministerio de Justicia y del Derecho y a la Oficina de las Naciones Unidas para la Droga y el Delito -UNODC-, en la construcción de una consultoría para el “Diseño e implementación de herramientas para la medición de acciones y estrategias de promoción y fortalecimiento del involucramiento parental, vinculo de familia y/o monitoreo parental en el entorno educativo”. m) El Ministerio Educación Nacional, con el apoyo del Ministerio de Justicia y del Derecho, el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social y a través de la operación en campo del Centro Nacional de Consultoría, diseñaron e implementaron el “Tercer Estudio Nacional de Consumo de Sustancias Psicoativas en población escolar, Colombia 2016”. n) El Ministerio de Educación Nacional ha participado en la elaboración de políticas públicas y lineamientos de políticas relacionados con la prevención del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas: - Política Integral para la Prevención y Atención del Consumo de Sustancias Psicoativas. - Política Nacional de Salud Mental - CONPES de Salud Mental - Ruta Futuro: Política Integral para Enfrentar el Problema de las Drogas - Lineamiento de prevención del consumo de alcohol y sustancias psicoactivas Finalmente, desde el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social en conjunto con el Instituto Nacional de Cancerología, la Liga Colombiana contra el cáncer y la Fundación Anaas se esta trabajando en la construcción de una iniciativa de participación ciudadana y empoderamiento de las normas sobre control de tabaco y derecho a la salud denominada "Acción colectiva para el control del tabaco" , la cual de manera inicial esta trabajando en el diseño de un curso para brindar herramientas a lideres sociales y comunitarios, estudiantes, profesores y otros. Se realizan de manera constante las actividades del Día Mundial sin tabaco. Para el año 2019 en el marco del tema Tabaco y salud pulmonar se realiaron varias acciones de manera coordinada con las Secretarias de salud de los territorios especialmente la Secretaria de Salud de Bogotá. Vease https://minsalud.gov.co/Paginas/Las-se%C3%B1ales-del-humo-del-tabaco-88-muertos-cada-dia.aspx Como parte de las actividades del Día Mundial sin tabaco 2020, el Instituto Nacional de Cancerología esta impulsando la campaña "Que entre sabores y colores el tabaco no te enamore", invitando principalmente a jóvenes a construir herramientas comunicativas que recojan este mensaje. Vease https://nofumar.cancer.gov.co/ Adicionalmente, en el marco del Proyecto de cooperación internacional FCTC 2030, se priorizó el desarrollo de una estrategia nacional de comunicaciones, que no sólo tendrá como objetivos el incremento de la percepción del riesgo frente al consumo y exposición al humo de tabaco, de la intención de abandonar el consumo de tabaco, y de la información completa sobre el control de tabaco. Los artículos 7, 8, 9, 10 y 11 de la Ley 1335 de 2009 contemplan el desarrollo de programas, políticas y estrategias de educación, comunicación y concientización del público acerca de los riesgos de consumir productos de tabaco. De acuerdo con los requisitos de la Ley de control de tabaco, existe una serie de proyectos de comunicación implementados por varios organismos gubernamentales y no gubernamentales para promover la vida libre de tabaco y el abandono del tabaco. Los programas de comunicación se han dirigido principalmente a los jóvenes, a fin de movilizarlos en favor de los Estilos de Vida Saludables. A partir de 2004, la publicidad sobre los efectos nocivos del consumo de tabaco se emite en televisión y radio nacionales durante 3 a 5 meses al año. De hecho, estas campañas se han realizado en el marco de la celebración anual del Día Mundial Sin Tabaco, donde también se llevan a cabo campañas de sensibilización. Puntualmente, y en el marco de los convenios desarrollados con entidades nacionales e internacionales, se han desarrollado diversas estrategias de información, educación y comunicación que han tenido como objetivo la socialización de las medidas de control de tabaco y los riesgos del consumo y la exposición al humo de tabaco. Las piezas comunicativas han estado dirigidas principalmente a la población joven con el objeto de movilizarlos a favor de la cultura de la salud. De igual forma, los territorios han desarrollado diversas iniciativas de comunicación para informar a la población general sobre las graves consecuencias del tabaquismo, en términos individuales y colectivos. Estas campañas han estado dirigidas a población general y población joven. Vale destacar, además, que en el Día Mundial Sin Tabaco del año 2011, el Ministerio de Salud junto con el Instituto Nacional de Cancerología han liderado la campaña "Parques y Playas libres de humo", cuyo propósito es el de concientizar al público (particularmente el público joven) sobre los beneficios de no fumar, y la necesidad de proteger a las personas y al planeta de las consecuencias del consumo y exposición al humo de tabaco. Ver: https://www.minsalud.gov.co/Paginas/Playas-y-parques-libres-de-humo.aspx Para el año 2012 se creó una estrategia de comunicación para jóvenes llamada “Generación más somos más sin tabaco”, la cual está dirigida a jóvenes y la cual busca mostrar lo positivo de no fumar. Para esta campaña se diseñaron una serie de materiales comunicativos entre los que se encuentran un comercial de tv, afiches manillas. Así mismo, se diseñó una plataforma virtual llamada generación más en la cual se desarrollan diferentes actividades relacionadas con promoción y prevención de los cuatro factores protectores entre los cuales está el no consumo de tabaco. Ver: https://www.minsalud.gov.co/Paginas/Somos%20m%C3%A1s%20sin%20tabaco.aspx En 2014, se desarrolló la estrategia “No fumo no quiero, porque me quiero”, dirigida a mujeres jóvenes. Ver: http://www.generacionmas.gov.co/VidaSana/pages/Somos-mas-sin-tabaco.aspx Paralelamente, el Instituto Nacional de Cancerología ha desarrollado la estrategia de comunicación “No Fumar es la Actitud”, que cuenta con un amplio número de seguidores en las redes sociales. En el marco de esta estrategia, se han diseñado y distribuido 12000 postales a la ciudadanía en distintos puntos de la capital colombiana. Esta es una pieza que se utiliza también en las charlas y presentaciones que hace el Instituto Nacional de Cancerología del tema. Así mismo, se han diseñado aplicaciones para dispositivos móviles interactivas para padres e hijos. Respecto al entorno educativo, se han implementado diversas estrategias. De un lado se ha implementado la Ruta pedagógica para la práctica de estilos de vida saludable. En esta Ruta, se priorizaron instituciones educativas en área rural, vulnerable y dispersa y se capacita la comunidad educativa con el fin de promover hábitos (actividad física, alimentación saludable, no consumo de tabaco y alcohol). Esta iniciativa está en 15 departamentos del país. La implementación de la Ruta Pedagógica para la Promoción de Estilos de Vida Saludable se desarrolla en los territorios con sus comunidades, partiendo de un momento que tiene como objetivo la construcción colectiva de iniciativas a cargo de la comunidad educativa y que respondan al contexto y realidad local, y de una fase de seguimiento, que busca consolidar las mismas, a través de la generación de nuevos conocimientos y el intercambio de experiencias. Esta articulación de estrategias ha dejado dentro de sus principales logros, la implementación de una nueva iniciativa denominada Semilleros juveniles para la Promoción de Estilos de Vida Saludable (actividad física, alimentación saludable, no consumo de tabaco y alcohol), es una estrategia que busca favorecer la “formación e inclusión de adolescentes y jóvenes no escolarizados y a estudiantes de educación media en el territorio”, para que desempeñen en sus comunidades y entornos cotidianos, el rol de animadores culturales y dinamizadores de los estilos de vida saludable, a través del arte, la cultura, la comunicación y el deporte. Los Semilleros Juveniles, tienen como principal objetivo brindar formación en promoción de la salud a adolescentes y jóvenes, a partir de la comunicación alternativa y cultural como mecanismo para lograr transformar los imaginarios colectivos y socioculturales de sus comunidades, en temas relacionados con la salud y las buenas prácticas para una vida saludable, así como el empoderamiento territorial para la gestión de estrategias para el desarrollo y la sostenibilidad de la salud. De otro modo, desde el Ministerio de Educación Nacional, en cumplimiento con la “Política Nacional de Reducción de la Demanda de Drogas” y con el “Plan Nacional de Promoción de la Salud, la prevención y la atención del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas (PNPSPACSPA) 2014-2021”, viene trabajando articuladamente en el marco de la Comisión Nacional de Reducción de la Demanda de Drogas y de la Comisión Técnica Nacional. En estas comisiones participan los sectores de salud, justicia, protección, seguridad y educación. En el componente de prevención del Plan Nacional se han venido definiendo distintas acciones a desarrollar para el 2017-2018. El MEN y las demás instituciones miembros de la Comisión técnica realizan las siguientes acciones para impactar a las escuelas: a) Construcción de un módulo de formación dirigido a docentes de preescolar, básica y media en prevención del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas en el marco del Modelo de formación y acompañamiento de educación para la ciudadanía; b) Diseño de secuencias didácticas en gestión del riesgo, la ética y el cuidado de los estudiantes En convenio con la Organización Internacional para las Migraciones (OIM), se contrató a un consultor para el diseño del módulo de formación y las secuencias didácticas. Se ha avanzado en un documento borrador del módulo y de las secuencias didácticas para la prevención del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas, lo incluye tabaco. Paralelamente, existe un Convenio entre la Policía Nacional y el Ministerio de Educación Nacional, cuyo objeto es “aunar esfuerzos técnicos y administrativos para el fortalecimiento del sistema nacional de convivencia escolar en las entidades territoriales e instituciones educativas focalizadas, relacionadas con la prevención del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas y la promoción de estilos de vida saludables”. En el marco de este Convenio se han revisado los documentos del Programa Escolarizado de Prevención del Consumo de Drogas, y se ha apoyado la reingeniería del Programa Escolarizado con el apoyo del Embajada de los Estados Unidos, la Universidad de los Andes y la Universidad de Nueva York. También se ha brindado capacitación a alrededor de cien instructores de la Dirección de Antinarcóticos en convivencia escolar y promoción de estilos de vida saludables como factores protectores frente al consumo de SPA. Se está avanzado en el diseño de un Protocolo para la activación de la atención de casos de consumo de sustancias psicoactivas en el entorno educativo, inicialmente a través de una revisión de las experiencias regionales y locales sobre la materia. Se están revisando las experiencias de Bogotá y Cali a nivel nacional y a nivel regional de Perú, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, México entre otras. Adicionalmente, este protocolo se armonizará con las Ruta de Atención Integral establecidas por el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social. Por otro lado, se han venido realizando reuniones con la policía nacional para estudiar los mecanismos jurídicos y técnicos necesarios en la construcción de un Protocolo de llegada de la Policía a los establecimientos educativos. Se ha avanzado en la redacción de un documento borrador preliminar que fue revisado internamente en el MEN y actualmente se encuentra en proceso de revisión y envío de observaciones por parte de los integrantes del Comité Nacional de Convivencia Escolar. Por último, desde el 2016, el Ministerio de Educación junto con el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social y el Ministerio de Justicia y del Derecho, participaron en el diseño de la Encuesta de Consumo de Sustancias Psicoactivas en población escolar - Colombia 2016. El Centro Nacional de Consultoría fue el encargado de desarrollar el operativo de campo. El análisis de la información lo llevó a cabo la Comisión Interamericana para el Control del Abuso de Drogas (CICAD) y ya se cuentan con los resultados y se espera presentar dichos resultados en el primer semestre de 2018. Los artículos 7, 8, 9, 10 y 11 de la Ley 1335 de 2009 contemplan el desarrollo de programas, políticas y estrategias de educación, comunicación y concientización del público acerca de los riesgos de consumir productos de tabaco. De acuerdo con los requisitos de la Ley de control de tabaco existe una serie de proyectos de comunicación implementados por varios organismos gubernamentales y no gubernamentales para promover la vida libre de tabaco y el abandono del tabaco.

Costa Rica El Ministerio de Salud a través del desarrollo de Proyectos en los tres niveles de Gestión ha emprendido acciones de información y educación a la población con el fin de controlar y detener las consecuencias negativas e incluso adictivas del consumo de tabaco, por cuanto este produce morbilidad, mortalidad y discapacidad. Instituciones como el Instituto sobre Alcoholismo y Farmacodependencia (IAFA) y la Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) desarrollan proyectos relacionados con la temática. El Ministerio de Salud a través del desarrollo de Proyectos en los 3 niveles de Gestión ha emprendido acciones de información y educación a la población con el fin de controlar y detener las consecuencias negativas e incluso adictivas del consumo de tabaco, por cuanto este produce morbilidad, mortalidad y discapacidad. Desde la Dirección de Promoción de la Salud del Ministerio de Salud se ha venido llevando a cabo el proyecto "Ponele a la Vida" desde hace más de cuatro años, en varios colegios del país, con el objetivo de promover los estilos de vida saludables en los adolescentes, dirigido hacia una mejor alimentación, practicar actividad física y adoptar una vida libre de tabaco. Desde el 2017, también, la Dirección de Desarrollo Científico y Tecnológico en Salud del Ministerio de Salud inició el proyecto llamado Unidades Itinerantes para la Prevención contra el Consumo de Tabaco, focalizado en niños de escuelas, cuya primer etapa incluyó las del área rural del sur del país. Consiste en dos contenedores que visitan las escuelas y están equipados con información y dispositivos electrónicos, en donde los niños aprenden sobre los peligros del consumo de tabaco y los beneficios de vivir alejados de este producto. El Programa de Control de Tabaco y la Dirección de Desarrollo Científico y Tecnológico en Salud del Ministerio de Salud aún se encuentra perfilando un convenio de cooperación con el Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología, con el fin de que el primero le traslade anualmente ₡100 millones al segundo para el financiamiento de investigaciones relacionadas al tabaquismo y control de tabaco. La Dirección de Vigilancia de la Salud desarrolló por tercer año consecutivo el proyecto "Domingos Familiares sin Humo", en conjunto con la Municipalidad de San José, espacio en el cual se utiliza la vía pública por cerca de 7 domingos seguidos durante el verano para convertirlo en un campo de recreación, con diversas actividades, entre las cuales se cuentan de promoción de la salud, enfocadas a la prevención del consumo de tabaco. En 2017, por primera vez, el proyecto se llevó a las otras provincias del país en coordinación con las municipalidades de dichos lugares. A finales del 2016, el Programa de Control de Tabaco aprovechó el espacio en el Festival de la Luz, pasacalles que se organiza en la capital a mediados de diciembre -y cuya exposición mediática es de las más altas del año por parte de los principales medios de comunicación del país-, para llevar una carroza con un mensaje antitabaco y de promoción de una vida libre de tabaquismo. Por su parte, la Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social tiene una lucha frontal contra el fumado en dos áreas, la primera en la parte atencional, con las clínicas de cesación y el segundo frente es evitar que la gente empiece a fumar especialmente las personas jóvenes, para ello se ha dado a la tarea de buscar estrategias para poder llegarle diferente a la gente, no solo estamos usando las redes sociales, sino que se le está diciendo a la gente que nos ayude a luchar contra el tabaco. La CCSS, además, ha estado desarrollando el proyecto “Compromiso contra el Fumado”, que inició en el 2014 y está enfocado en la prevención del consumo en niños, primordialmente, de segundo ciclo, a través de actividades curriculares y extracurriculares, como concursos de arte, de oratoria, festivales deportivos, ferias científicas las cuales son acompañadas por personeros de las áreas de salud. Por su parte, el IAFA cuenta con programas de promoción dentro de los cuales se destaca "Deje y gane", concurso que se ha venido implementando cada dos años desde el 2000, y consiste en que las personas fumadoras se inscriban por medio de una boleta física, de manera digital o por llamada telefónica, para que asuman el reto de dejar de fumar durante un mes. Después de ese período se realiza un sorteo en el que se seleccionan al menos 15 personas participantes a las que se les realiza un examen de marcadores de nicotina para comprobar el proceso de cesación, esto en colaboración con el hospital privado Clínica Bíblica. Si el examen resulta positivo la persona pierde el derecho a ganar el premio dispuesto, pero si el examen nicotínico es negativo la persona puede reclamar el premio correspondiente. Otro de los programas de promoción de la salud es “El Club de los Vencedores”, el cual consiste en un grupo de acompañamiento de personas que han dejado el consumo de tabaco o que se encuentran en proceso, al que el IAFA les brinda asesoría para lograr el objetivo de no volver a consumir. Destaca la creación de una aplicación para teléfonos inteligentes que se descarga de manera gratuita llamada “Entrenador Anti-fumado”, la cual busca que las personas que intentan disminuir y terminar su consumo puedan crearse un plan de cesación que se va actualizando, mostrando los logros en salud y económicos conforme se va dejando de consumir. Del lado de la educación formal, el programa "Aprendo a valerme por mi mismo", que en el 2016 cumplió 10 años de realizarse en escuelas. Este busca promover la enseñanza y práctica de las habilidades para vivir en la población de preescolar y escolar, como estrategia para prevenir y rechazar el consumo de drogas. El objetivo es fortalecer los factores de protección y reducir los factores de riesgo para prevenir y desestimular el consumo de tabaco, alcohol y otras drogas. A nivel de empresas aún se continúa ejecutando “Espacios Libres de Humo de Tabaco”, programa de sensibilización y capacitación que se imparte en centros de trabajo para trabajadores, colaborando para que los profesionales de salud que laboran en estos conformen grupos de apoyo o refieran a las clínicas de cesación a la población fumadora. De parte del ICODER que también recibe dinero de la Ley 9028, presentó en el 2017 el proyecto “El deporte como acción preventiva contra el consumo de tabaco”, que tuvo el objetivo de promover el deporte de alto rendimiento como impulso al desarrollo de estilos de vida activos y saludables por medio de programas y proyectos internacionales, nacionales y locales. Para ello, se tenía proyectado capacitar a las entidades deportivas sobre la ley, dotar de becas deportivas a atletas y la utilización de logos y signos externos en contra del consumo del tabaco. El CEN-CINAI, ente que se encuentra adscrito al Ministerio de Salud, y se encarga de velar por el estado nutricional de la población materno/infantil, desarrolló el proyecto de fomento a la autoestima y autonomía de los niños, en donde se les enseñaba a mantenerse alejados de las drogas como el tabaco. De igual forma, el Ministerio de Educación Pública, en conjunto con el Ministerio de Salud y el Instituto Costarricense sobre Drogas, desarrollan proyectos similares en escuelas y colegios. El Ministerio de Salud a través del desarrollo de Proyectos en los 3 niveles de Gestión ha emprendido acciones de información y educación a la población con el fin de controlar y detener las consecuencias negativas e incluso adictivas del consumo de tabaco, por cuanto este produce morbilidad, mortalidad y discapacidad.

Czech Republic The Office of the Government of the Czech Republic, The Drug Policy Department: Since 2016 the National Monitoring Centre for Drugs and addiction (Unit of the Drug Policy Department) run national website promoting smoking cessation (www.koureni-zabiji.cz). This website is advertised through cigarette package health warning. The number of visits of the website rises more steeply whenever the issue of tobacco is medialised, and after a decline of media interest, it is again at a stable level. New visitors made up 14 % of the website´s users in 2019. The Drug Policy Department had limited budget to finance also campaigns to prevent smoking. Prevention was mainly funded via grants provided by Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education, however those campaigns are rare due to financial restrains. In 2018 and in 2019 National Conference on Alcohol and Tobacco in the Czech Republic was organised. Tobacco control issues were part of the conference program. Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic: In March 2019 new core strategic documents for the area of school-based prevention - the National Strategy for the Primary Prevention of Risk Behaviour of Children and Youth for the period 2019-2027 and its Action plan - were approved by the Governement of the Czech Republic (resolution of the government No. 190, documents available on-line at: http://www.msmt.cz/vzdelavani/socialni-programy/strategie-a-koncepce-ap-msmt ) There is a Methodical Recommendation on Primary Prevention of Risk Behavior in Children and Youth (document of Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic), which defines the current terminology that is in line with terminology in the EU countries and the inclusion of prevention into the school curriculum and the school regulations etc. It includes different attachments – one of them is recommendation for pedagogical staff (concept of intervention) related to prevention of tobacco use at school. Its revised version was published in January 2019. All schools have a “prevention methodologist” who is responsible for the smoking prevention activities. Each school implement its preventive programme which includes prevention of tobacco use, as well. The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic yearly financially supports the prevention programs in which smoking prevention is one of the priorities. The programs are aimed at work with pupils, teachers and teacher´s education in this field. Unified Online Preventive Reporting System is operational. It is based on websites www.preventivni-aktivity.cz. The National Institute for Education, the Clinic of Addictology of the First Medical Faculty of the Charles University and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports cooperate on its development and implementation. It is used for reporting of implemented preventive activities of each school, the occurrence of individual forms of risk behavior in schools etc. There are examples of successful school-based preventive programs such as UNPLUGGED (topic of tobacco use included among other examples of risk behaviour), which has been carried out in many schools of the Czech Republic (confirmed efficacy of the program in prevention of tobacco use). Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic: The Ministry of Health financially supported from its funding programs several projects promoting prevention of tobacco use in 2018 – 2019. For example, in 2018 and 2019 the Ministry of Health supported projects promoting of Quit line etc. On the occasion of World No Tobacco Day in 2018 and 2019 press conferences of Health Minister and other invited experts took place. They aimed at effectiveness of new anti-smoking law (Act No. 65/2017 Coll.) and increasing of public awareness of the harm related to tobacco.

The aim of the project is to support through field interventions in the process of decision-making for the sake of one´s health, by changing knowledge, attitude and conduct while making health connected decisions. The people concerned are people affected by poverty and social exclusion. 68 preventive programmes were created and one preventive programme concerns tobacco use and health consequences of tobacco use. On the occasion of the World No Tobacco Day in 2019, NIPH in cooperation with schools and local authorities prepared 5 “Health days” focused on the issue of tobacco dependence. The aim was to raise awareness of passive smoking, the emergence of smoking related diseases and measures that major target groups, including the public and governments can take to reduce lung health risks caused by tobacco. For the target group - students of secondary schools, information activities focused on smoking prevention were implemented within the interactive game "How (Not) Becoming a Dependent". For children of pre-school age and younger schoolchildren, the programs "Prevention of Smoking Playfully", which inform children about negative consequences of smoking, have been implemented. In 2018 and 2019, the issue of the educational material "Diary of the schoolboy/schoolgirl" continued, containing a chapter on the prevention of the use of illicit drugs.

Further, a European adaptation of the Universal Prevention Curriculum (EUPC; upc-adapt.eu ) was developed and introduced, funded by European Commission. Three forms of training for the use of EUPC were developed: online training (10 e-learning lectures); a shorter non-academic training (16 hours); and an academic training (40 hours). All training modules are manual-based and all materials are publicly available and free to use. Implementation of the whole curriculum or only parts of it may contribute to introducing quality to prevention through training. There has been implemented (and conducted RCT studying the effect of) the Unplugged intervention (delivered to 6th graders) combined with an independent follow-up intervention, called the nPrevention (delivered to 7th graders), focusing on tobacco (and other drugs).

Singapore Identifying, developing and sustaining partnerships is key to the implementation and effectiveness of programmes. The Health Promotion Board actively engages educational institutions, private workplaces, the uniformed services, health professionals, youth organisations, community and religious groups, and parents, to promote a smoke-free lifestyle. Partnership is often in the form of capacity building and consultative service to improve knowledge and skills pertaining to tobacco control, as well as providing assistance in the organisation of implementing appropriate tobacco control programmes for various target audiences. Healthcare Institutions Healthcare professionals are equipped with the skills and knowledge to provide opportunistic smoking cessation advice to patients through a structured smoking cessation training programme, known as the Certification for Quit Smoking Consultants (CQSC). HPB works in collaboration with restructured hospitals (owned by the Government and receives a government subsidy, but is run as a private company) to fund their inpatient smoking cessation programme. As smoking could aggravate or induce many health conditions, the inpatient smoking cessation program aims to nudge smokers kick start their quitting journey during their stay in the hospital. Smoking cessation support is also available at more than 630 touch points island-wide, which include retail pharmacies, primary care institutions, and roadshows in community and corporate settings, where people can find out about smoking cessation services and register for interventions. Workplaces HPB works with workplaces to develop corporate smoking control programmes that help employees who smoke quit the habit, and achieve better health, finances and productivity at work. These programmes fall into three two broad categories: awareness and cessation. For awareness, HPB conducts motivational talks that encourage smokers to contemplate quitting and non-smokers to maintain a smoke-free lifestyle. HPB also distributes support resources such as posters, campaign videos and pamphlets to workplaces. These help to de-stigmatize smoking and foster a supportive work environment for smokers to quit. For cessation, HPB conducts group counselling sessions for smokers in their workplaces over a period of 6 weeks. Smokers are also encouraged to sign up for the I Quit 28-Day Countdown challenge to complement their participation in the counselling programme. HPB also works with the Uniformed Services, including both recruits and management personnel, to develop and implement smoking cessation programmes specifically tailored to their needs and setting. These includes holistic health seminars, where smoking is introduced as a negative coping mechanism, and group coaching and counselling programmes with interactive activities HPB tries to build capacity of interested personnel through training workshops, which equip them to provide opportunistic counselling to their peers who smoke. Since 2014, HPB has been working with the Singapore Armed Forces to expand the suite of smoking control programmes to more units. Youth Programmes Education and awareness, with appropriate interventions, are critical in preventing tobacco use and initiation among youths. HPB works closely with the Ministry of Education (MOE) and Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) to incorporate anti-tobacco messages into the curriculum. These initiatives aim to raise awareness about the benefits of leading a tobacco-free lifestyle, dispel common misconceptions about smoking, and equip youth with life skills to refuse cigarette offers. HPB also adopts a targeted approach by offering smoking cessation interventions to youth smokers in schools and community organisations. These cessation programmes for youth are underpinned by a strengths-based approach that seeks to harness positive aspects of the youth to bring about behaviour change. This approach is based on the understanding that youth will be more ready to address their problems when they feel empowered and more confident about their own abilities. HPB’s cessation programme helps youth channel their attention away from smoking and other risky behaviours by engaging in healthy activities aligned with their strengths. It also equips youth with the knowledge and skills to kick the habit and learn coping strategies to better deal with stress, anger, frustration or boredom. Student Health Advisors (SHAs) provide tailored smoking cessation counselling to youth smokers in schools. Counselling sessions are conducted on an individual and/or group basis, depending on the youth’s specific needs and preferences. Counselling support is also provided via HPB’s Quitline (Tel: 1800 438 2000) services. Community Besides preventing smoking initiation among youth, HPB also focuses on smoking cessation to encourage quitting among the general population. To this end, HPB launched the I Quit Movement in June 2011 to inspire smokers to quit with the use of encouraging testimonials and role models, coupled with a strong support network, which smokers can tap on. As part of its 2013 I Quit campaign, HPB introduced the Let’s Quit: The 28-Day Countdown. The 28-Day Countdown is based on findings that smokers who stay smoke-free for 28 days are five times more likely to succeed for good. The 28-Day Countdown helps smokers quit smoking by breaking down the quit journey into daily, small actionable steps, and equipping them with the knowledge and support to remain smoke-free through the crucial period of 28 days. HPB has increased outreach to smokers from 3,400 in 2013 to about 20,000 in 2018, and data has shown that 10% of the participants stayed smoke-free for 28 days. Identifying, developing and sustaining partnerships is key to the implementation and effectiveness of programmes. The Health Promotion Board actively engages educational institutions, private workplaces, the uniformed services, health professionals, youth organisations, community and religious groups, and parents, to promote a smoke-free lifestyle. Partnership is often in the form of capacity building and consultative service to improve knowledge and skills pertaining to tobacco control, as well as providing assistance in the organisation of implementing appropriate tobacco control programmes for various target audiences. Healthcare Institutions Healthcare professionals are equipped with the skills and knowledge to provide opportunistic smoking cessation advice to patients through a structured smoking cessation training programme, known as the Certification for Quit Smoking Consultants (CQSC). HPB works in collaboration with restructured hospitals (owned by the Government and receives a government subsidy, but is run as a private company) to fund their inpatient smoking cessation programme. As smoking could aggravate or induce many health conditions, the inpatient smoking cessation program aims to nudge smokers kick start their quitting journey during their stay in the hospital. Smoking cessation counselling is also available at more than 150 healthcare touch points island-wide, which include retail pharmacies and primary care institutions. Workplaces HPB works with workplaces to develop customized workplace smoking control programmes that aim to help employees who smoke quit the habit to achieve better health, finances and productivity at work. These programmes fall into three broad categories: awareness, cessation, and sustenance. For awareness, HPB conducts motivational talks that encourage smokers to contemplate quitting and non-smokers to continue maintaining a smoke-free lifestyle. HPB also distributes support resources such as posters and pamphlets to workplaces. These help to de-stigmatize smoking and foster a supportive work environment for smokers to quit. For cessation, HPB conducts group counselling sessions for smokers in their workplaces over a period of 6 weeks. Smokers are also encouraged to sign up for the I Quit 28-day countdown challenge to complement their participation in the workplace programme. For sustenance, HPB provides smoking cessation counselling training for interested staff so that they are equipped to provide opportunistic counselling advice to their smoker colleagues. HPB also works with the Uniformed Services, including both recruits and management personnel, to develop and implement smoking cessation programmes specifically tailored to their needs and setting.

Recognizing that smokers are also more likely to quit successfully when they are in a supportive environment, HPB has also engaged non-smokers in a more active role through the #StepUpForAQuitter campaign in 2015. As part of this campaign, smokers and non-smokers paired up to document their daily experiences during their 28-day quit journey. WHO Western Pacific Region

Spain LA ESTRATEGIA DE PROMOCIÓN DE LA SALUD Y PREVENCIÓN EN EL SISTEMA NACIONAL DE SALUD (SNS), en el marco del abordaje de la cronicidad en el SNS, recoge una serie de intervenciones para actuar sobre los principales determinantes y factores de riesgo de las enfermedades crónicas, como son el consumo de tabaco y de alcohol, el tipo de alimentación y la actividad física; introduciendo también el bienestar emocional. 1. Capacitación de la población: Web de Estilos de Vida Saludable, disponible desde noviembre de 2015. La sección de Prevención del Tabaquismo (http://www.estilosdevidasaludable.msssi.gob.es/tabaco/home.htm) recoge información sobre los riesgos para la salud del consumo y la exposición al humo de tabaco, así como los beneficios de abandonar el consumo, incluyendo el ahorro de gastos, ayuda para dejar de fumar y un apartado sobre las consecuencias de la producción y el consumo de tabaco en el medio ambiente y los derechos humanos (http://www.estilosdevidasaludable.msssi.gob.es/tabaco/tabacoY/medioambiente/home.htm). Está orientada a toda la población e incluye apartados específicos para distintos grupos de edad, embarazo, madres y padres, y salud mental, intentando reflejar las diferencias fundamentales entre los grupos de población destinatarios. 2. Capacitación de los profesionales sanitarios: Uno de los pilares fundamentales de la implementación de la Estrategia es el Consejo Integral sobre estilo de vida saludable en Atención Primaria vinculado a recursos comunitarios, donde se incluye la prevención del tabaquismo y la ayuda para dejar de fumar.
