Poster: Introduction of a minimum legal age of sale of 21 for tobacco in Ireland – results from a rapid review of evidence

On World No Tobacco Day, we are highlighting some recent work on tobacco control. 

On Tuesday 23 May, IPH Public Health Development Officer, Lauren Rodriguez, attended the Faculty of Public Health Medicine Summer Scientific Meeting to share the findings from a recent rapid review of Tobacco 21 legislation and policy options.

‘Tobacco 21’ legislation aims to reduce or delay smoking initiation among younger people by setting the minimum legal age for the sale of tobacco products to 21 years. 

Lauren presented a poster titled 'Introduction of a minimum legal age of sale of 21 for tobacco in Ireland', which summarised results from a recent Tobacco 21 report

The Tobacco 21 report was developed from national and international evidence analysed by the Institute of Public Health and published by the the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland’s Policy Group on Tobacco - access the full report here.
