The report sets out the progress achieved on the implementation of the 52 recommendations of the Strategy and the degree to which the key performance indicators are being met.

The NCCP has provided input into the HSE's Tobacco Cessation Support Programme and continues to be centrally involved in the smoking cessation effort.

In November 2020, a provision of the Public Health (Alcohol) Act which addresses the separation and display of alcohol products in mixed trade retailers, and the advertising associated with those products, came into effect.

Following work through 2020, further regulations to restrict price-based promotions of alcohol were signed by the Minister for Health and came into effect 11 January 2021. The purpose of the regulations is to ensure that alcohol products cannot be sold cheaply, or given free of charge, as part of a price promotion or as part of loyalty card schemes.

Further provisions relating to alcohol advertising in sport will be considered in 2021, as will legislation to ban the sale of e-cigarette and vaping products to those under 18 years of age.
