The 7th European Conference Tobacco or Health (ECTOH) will be held on Porto in 22-25 March 2017.

The Portuguese League Against Cancer (LPCC) is organizing this venue under the auspices of the Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL).


As the burden of tobacco in Europe and in the world is still enormous, it is of utmost importance that tobacco control remains our top priority. The goal of our conference is to mobilize people/citizens to improve health through tobacco control policies in Europe and Worldwide.

"The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) is the main guidance for tobacco control officers all over the world but years after its approval and ratification there is still room for improvement and new boundaries must be settled. What we need, besides broad implementation of comprehensive tobacco control policies and smoking cessation programs throughout Europe, is solidarity for health. This is a change for all of us," ECTOH president Vitor Veloso said. 


The European Conference on Tobacco or Health 2017 will gather policy makers, scientists, health educators, advocacy officers and health professionals involved in tobacco control.
