Smoking is one of the most important causes of death and disease throughout the world. Since the late 1990s, the number of policies and interventions implemented to decrease smoking has greatly increased. These policies have been shown to be effective in reducing the smoking prevalence in the population as a whole. However, this effect is much lower in lower education and income groups than in higher education and income groups. Jizzo Bosdriesz’s research aims to provide evidence on how to reduce these inequalities, based on evaluations of recent natural experiments in tobacco control policy across Europe.
