Every year three million people die as a result of the harmful effects of tobacco use, and this figure is likely to increase as more and more young people take up smoking. Faced with the persistence of the tobacco epidemic, governments are increasingly turning to legislation as part of their campaign to reduce the morbidity and mortality from tobacco-related diseases. This review describes the experiences of various countries with different types of legislation, explaining why certain measures have been adopted and how they relate to other tobacco-control strategies.
