Previous IPH Smoke-Free Publications
IPH has published a number of reports on creating a smoke-free island over recent years:
- Last year, IPH published its first snapshot report on Smoke-Free Spaces on the Island of Ireland with data coming from the Department of Health’s (ROI) Healthy Ireland Survey and the Department of Health (NI) Health Survey Northern Ireland and a wide range of other sources;
- In 2015, the Institute published Smoke-Free Spaces: Progress in reducing exposure to second-hand smoke in Northern Ireland incorporating the five-year review of smoke-free legislation (http://www.publichealth.ie/document/iph-report/smoke-free-spaces-progress-reducing-exposure-second-hand-smoke-northern-ireland);
- In conjunction with the TobaccoFree Research Institute Ireland, IPH published A Tobacco-Free Future – an all-island report on tobacco inequalities and childhood (http://www.publichealth.ie/document/iph-report/tobacco-free-future-all-island-report-tobacco-inequalities-and-childhood-2013).
