What you'll learn
Part of the Gender and Health Webinar Series
The tobacco industry aggressively targets women, adolescents and LGBTQI groups, with worrying trends of increasing tobacco use among them. Currently, 2.15 million women die each year due to tobacco use – 71% of whom live in low- and middle-income countries- and more than 30,000 tobacco-related deaths are among LGBTQI people every year.
 
The importance of approaching tobacco control from a more comprehensive gendered perspective remains critical. Unfortunately, evidence to inform tobacco control policies and programmes for women and other marginalised groups is lacking, especially in the global South.
 
In this online session, you’ll learn to create more gender-equitable, contextualised, tobacco control responses.
