  • Ministerial delegations from Russia and China visit Scotland to observe implementation of progressive tobacco control policies

    A delegation of ministerial public health officials from Russia and China will observe Scotland’s progressive tobacco control laws in action during a three-day visit to the capital, beginning 3 March.

    Members of Scottish Government and academics at the University of Edinburgh will share their knowledge of tobacco control policy development and implementation, and healthcare providers, retailers and non-governmental organisations will demonstrate how laws are working on the ground. The delegates’ governments are both currently developing tobacco control legislation to promote public health.
