Smoking-related diseases have taken a toll on global health for decades. Health officials and governments have tried many strategies to combat smoking, but the tobacco industry has survived attempts to reduce tobacco use. How and why does the prevalence of smoking differ around the world, and what strategies work best for reducing it?

He also described a recent international tobacco control effort that offers hope for reducing tobacco's worldwide threat to health.
