ENSP-CTFK Webinar: Using Point of Sale Investigations to Successfully Advance TAPS Policy


Together with the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, ENSP will host another webinar on Tuesday, December 15, from 13:30 to 15:00 (CET), titled “Using Point of Sale Investigations to Successfully Advance TAPS Policy: Case Studies from Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Bosnia Herzegovina”

Presenters: Debra Rosen, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids; George Bakhturidze, Framework Convention on Tobacco Control Implementation and Monitoring Center in Georgia; Jamilya Sadykova, National Coalition For a Smoke-Free Kazakhstan; and Uliana Bakh, Association “Progressive Reinforcement of Organisations and Individuals.”  

While the world’s biggest tobacco companies – British American Tobacco, Imperial Brands, Japan Tobacco, and Philip Morris International – claim only to market their deadly products to adults, point of sale promotional tactics associated with these companies such as posters, displays at children’s eye-level, flavored tobacco products, and tobacco products positioned next to candies and sweets are consistently found at points of sale around the world. In this webinar, tobacco control advocates from Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Bosnia Herzegovina will share findings of point of sale investigations examining common promotional tactics observed in Eurasia and discuss how these findings were used to generate public awareness about tobacco industry efforts to addict a new generation of young consumers and bolster policy advocacy campaigns to advance Tobacco Advertising, Promotion, and Sponsorships bans.
