The plan aims to reduce the number of people who smoke in Wales.

A comprehensive strategy is needed to reduce the number of people who smoke.

This includes:

  • Legislation
  • high taxation
  • regulation of advertising and sales
  • restrictions on smoking in public places
  • a range of awareness, education and cessation initiatives.

The Tobacco Control Action Plan for Wales incorporates all of these approaches.

The Action Plan has set a challenging target to reduce smoking levels to 20 per cent by 2016 and to 16 per cent by 2020. Our ultimate aim is a smoke-free Wales where the harm from tobacco is eradicated.  

A Tobacco Control Strategic Board is  overseeing progress of the Tobacco Control Delivery Plan.
