Tackling the Public Health Impacts of Smoking and Vaping

This report considers:

  • trends in smoking prevalence in NI over the last decade, and comparison of these with available information in the rest of the UK and the RoI, and assessment of key problem groups;
  • the measures, initiatives and strategies introduced locally to try and reduce smoking levels, performance against the most recent smoking prevalence reduction targets in NI, and developing issues around vaping; and
  • the effectiveness of key measures taken to try and support tobacco control, including those aimed at supporting existing smokers to quit, and the enforcement of tobacco and vaping control legislation.
