Tobacco Endgames

What They Are and Are Not, Issues for Tobacco Control Strategic Planning and a Possible U.S. Scenario

"An endgame addresses tobacco as a systems issue, rather than an individual behavior; addresses health and political implications; reframes strategic debates; advances social justice; and is fundamentally transformative in changing how tobacco use and the tobacco industry are regarded. An endgame is not merely more of the same, in that it requires an authentic public policy commitment to achieving a true endgame, as opposed to continuing to envision the public health challenge as an ongoing war of attrition."
