Global assembly praises NZ tobacco control


The scientific session on tobacco cessation at the World Medical Association General Assembly in Montevideo, Uruguay has praised New Zealand's "end-game thinking" approach to tobacco cessation. Dr Richard D. Hurt, founder and director of the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Centre, said that while most counties focus on reduction in tobacco consumption New Zealand has a vision of a smokefree society and has the courage and political will to achieve this.
