“Tobacco Control Theory and Implementation,” written by Tingzhong Yang, the director of our research center, was published in November 2010 by People's Medical Publishing House. The text introduces a tobacco control framework and the latest tobacco control theories and applications. Professor Yang used practical experience from his previous project (Tobacco Control Courses in tobacco-free Universities with Public Health Faculties funded by the International Union against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease) to describe necessary skills and techniques for tobacco control. The book also includes a tobacco-free campus toolkit and guidelines.
The text will be used as teaching material by universities participating in our current project (Tobacco Control Courses in tobacco-free Universities with Public Health Faculties) and as a tool to help them build tobacco-free campuses. The book uniquely describes the latest international tobacco control theories from a Chinese cultural context, while showcasing the author’s views on how to use the included theories and applications.
