Tobacco, Girls and Women

Led by Dr Lorraine Greaves since 1996, CEWH has conducted policy-oriented research, focused on preventing and reducing the effects of tobacco on women and girls, and gender differences in tobacco use, smoking cessation and second-hand smoke exposure. This work has been supported by partnerships and funding from Health Canada, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, the Canadian Tobacco Control Research Initiative, the International Network of Women Against Tobacco (INWAT), the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Cancer Society, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence in Health (NICE), and Cancer Research UK.
