    Global tobacco control : a "prevention best buy." [streaming video] -- Global tobacco epidemic and public health response [PDF version of the PowerPoint presentation by Joanna Cohen, p. 1-22] -- Global tobacco surveillance system: from data to action [PDF version of the PowerPoint presentation by Samira Asma, p. 23-42] -- International advances in tobacco control [PDF version of the PowerPoint presentation by Michael Eriksen, p. 43-61]

    This session of Grand Rounds will explore the control of tobacco use--the leading preventable cause of premature death and disease worldwide. Currently, approximately 5.4 million people die each year due to tobacco-related illnesses, a figure expected to increase to more than 8 million a year by 2030. If current global trends continue, tobacco use will cause up to 1 billion deaths in the 21st century. CDC is the lead US federal agency for comprehensive tobacco prevention and control, and CDC's Office on Smoking and Health develops, conducts, and supports strategic efforts to protect the public's health from the harmful effects of tobacco use. An efficient and systematic surveillance mechanism to monitor the epidemic is one of the essential components of a comprehensive tobacco control program. Global tobacco control has been called a "best buy" in public health. Beyond monitoring of tobacco use and exposure, this session will discuss effective prevention strategies at the personal, population, and policy levels.
