Exposure to the detrimental effects of tobacco smoke is preventable. Improving public health through sustained efforts to reduce the burden associated with tobacco-related deaths and exposure to tobacco smoke remains a national and international goal for governments and policy makers.

Despite unequivocal international evidence on the harms of tobacco smoke exposure, it remains a leading cause of premature mortality and morbidity, with evidence consistently showing no safe level of tobacco smoke exposure.

Internationally, successful legislation more than a decade ago banning smoking in workplaces and public places has been instrumental in reducing tobacco smoke exposure.
