About this chapter

This chapter of the National Cancer Prevention Policy presents information about tobacco-related cancer and tobacco control policies. It will be updated as significant new literature is published or changes in the policy environment occur.

The chapter was developed by Cancer Council Australia's Tobacco Issues Committee in April 2013, and was externally reviewed in July 2013 by Professor Mike Daube, Curtin University and Dr Michelle Scollo, Co-Director of the VicHealth Centre for Tobacco Control. The chapter was endorsed by Cancer Council Australia's principal Public Health Committee and published in July 2013.
