Tobacco, as has been amply proven, is hazardous to people's health. Nevertheless, in many of the countries of the Americas, use of tobacco has increased, and thus it can be expected that in the next few years the Americas will face a smoking-related epidemic. This book aims to further the understanding of this situation by providing information on the general socioeconomic context, the tobacco industry, tobacco use, smoking and its effects on health, and smoking prevention and control activities in 32 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as in Canada. Most of the information contained in this publication cannot be found in any other single source. It will thus serve as a baseline of data for developing countries in the Region as they engage in the complex task of preventing and controlling tobacco use.

Health workers, researchers, and policy makers can use the information presented here to build a coalition against what may be one of the most important public health problems.
