Excerpt
Introduction It has been estimated that some three million deaths are attributable to smoking annually and that the number could rise to ten million within 30 to 40 years (1). Effective action against tobacco requires countries to understand the magnitude of the adverse effects of smoking on their populations. As country representatives negotiate WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, the need for reliable and timely data on tobacco and its use is greater than ever before. The effects of tobacco use could be monitored through a global system routinely assembling information on the tobacco trade, tobacco farming, the tobacco industry, the prevalence of tobacco use, associated mortality, and national resources for combating tobacco. Anticipating the demand for a global information system to support new tobacco control efforts, WHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initiated the development of the National Tobacco Information Online System (known provisionally as NATIONS) in 1998. The baseline data for this system were collected for the Tobacco Control Country Profiles (TCCP) project, led by the American Cancer Society. The project has produced a monograph to be presented at the 11th World Conference on Tobacco or Health (Chicago, 6–11 August 2000).
