    Smokeless tobacco (ST) products present a complex and widespread challenge to public health that has so far received limited attention from researchers and policymakers. In many regions and countries of the world, such as South-East Asia, ST use is the predominant form of tobacco use. Indeed, data from the Global Youth Tobacco Survey show that students aged 13–15 surveyed in 132 countries were more likely to report using non-cigarette tobacco products including ST products (11.2%) than to report smoking cigarettes (8.9%).1 Yet international tobacco control efforts have largely focused on cigarettes, devoting only limited attention to other types of products, including smokeless tobacco.
