The tobacco epidemic is a global challenge demanding concerted global and national action. Recognizing that globalization is accelerating the epidemic's spread and perceiving the limits of national action to contain a public health problem with transnational dimensions Member States of the World Health Organization negotiated and adopted a unique public health treaty for tobacco control. Today the WHO FCTC contains the blueprint for coordinated global action to address one of the most significant risks to health. The idea for this handbook arose from the awareness that while various official WHO documents called for developing national capacity for tobacco control there was no comprehensive publication for the development of such capacity. Conceived as a 'How to' manual Building Blocks for tobacco Control is intentionally pragmatic addressing 'real world' issues and providing practical advice for setting up viable national tobacco control programmes. The handbook contains three main sections. The introduction presents the evolving definition of 'national capacity' identifies the types of capacities needed for effective tobacco control and outlines the key features of building capacity. Part I provides a descriptive overview of the tobacco epidemic and is further subdivided into four chapters on tobacco as a risk factor with attendant health and economic costs; the global strategies of the tobacco industry; the scientific evidence for effective tobacco control interventions; and the WHO FCTC as a global solution to a health epidemic with prominent politico-legal and sociocultural attributes. Part II focuses on the fundamental capacities necessary to empower countries to take on the tobacco epidemic successfully. These chapters apply the lessons learned from the experiences of countries and offer advice and suggestions to enable Member States to put the theories of tobacco control into practice. Chapters on countering the tobacco industry forming effective partnerships monitoring and evaluating progress and exchanging information and research provide insights to augment tobacco control capacity.

The idea for this handbook arose from an awareness that whilst various WHO documents called for developing national capacity for tobacco control, there was not comprehensive guide to the development of such a capacity. This book is thus, essentially, a pragmatic "how to" manual. The Introduction presents the evolving definition of "national capacity", identifies the types of capacities needed for effective tobacco control and outlines the key features of building capacity. Section 1 provides a descriptive overview of the tobacco epidemic. It looks at tobacco as a risk factor, presenting its health, social and economic costs; the global strategies of the tobacco industry to counteract public health measures; the scientific evidence for effective tobacco control interventions; and the WHO FCTC as a global solution to an epidemic with prominent politico-legal and socio-cultural attributes. Section 2 focuses on the fundamental capacities necessary to empower countries to control the tobacco epidemic successfully. These chapters apply the lessons learned from the experiences of different countries and offer advice and suggestions to enable countries to put the theories of tobacco control into practice.

By reviewing regulatory initiatives in health financing, service provision, pharmaceutical sector and public health, this book attempts to connect recent research with policy developments in the Chinese health-care system. While there are a small number of studies on the regulations in the Chinese health-care system, this book contributes to the literature in three ways. First, a review of the recent developments in the Chinese health-care system illustrates that the capacity and incentives of the regulatory agencies matter in the implementation and enforcement of the regulations. Second, this book also shows that some institutional arrangements in the Chinese context are particularly important for configuring the capacity and incentives of the regulatory system. Third, this book lays out the mechanisms for the regulatory reform of the Chinese health-care system.

The health and economic costs of tobacco use in military and veteran populations are high. In 2007, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) requested that the Institute of Medicine (IOM) make recommendations on how to reduce tobacco initiation and encourage cessation in both military and veteran populations. In its 2009 report, Combating Tobacco in Military and Veteran Populations, the authoring committee concludes that to prevent tobacco initiation and encourage cessation, both DoD and VA should implement comprehensive tobacco-control programs.

Scholars and governments recognize the importance of policy development and implementation for population health, but there is a lack of systematic theoretical and conceptual development in the health field to address the issue. Health Promotion and the Policy Process is the first book to take an in-depth look at the theoretical advances in the political sciences, including discussing the significance of political economy and sociology, which so far have made little progress in health promotion development. The book argues that focusing on how public policies work makes it possible to move beyond the more behavioural 'health education' approach, and make the transition from political statements to political strategies. The authors draw from a wide array of theories on the policy process in the fields of political science and political sociology to illuminate health promotion strategies and objectives. For example they discuss how Kingdon's Multiple Streams Model, Sabatier's Advocacy-Coalition Framework and policy network theories can contribute to greater health equity, healthy public policies and community development. Through practical and critical tools, research, and experience-based discussion, Health Promotion and the Policy Process discusses how theories can be used to influence, evaluate, orient or implement health promotion interventions and policies. This book will be essential reading for health promoters who want to make a difference by influencing social determinants of health at the policy level including students, public health professionals, researchers, practitioners, decision makers and those concerned with applied policy research.
