Supply-Side Options for an Endgame for the Tobacco Industry

"The FCTC guidelines acknowledge that ‘there is a fundamental and irreconcilable conflict between the tobacco industry’s interests and public health policy interests’. A desire to ‘resist the tobacco industry vector’ and to plan an endgame for tobacco control may generate an interest in the fundamental changes to the tobacco industry by the public health authorities. If so, a range of preliminary suggestions is available for consideration. This paper summarises six such proposals and identifies factors that distinguish them from each other and from other endgame ideas."
