ICO-WHO Symposium on Tobacco Control, Barcelona, 12/12/2016.

It is a pleasure to announce the Third ICO-WHO Symposium on Tobacco Control to be held in L’Hospitalet (Barcelona) on 12th December 2016.

After the good experience of the 2012 and 2014 Symposia, we at the WHO Collaborating Center for Tobacco Control have prepared this third edition. It will count with international experts (see attached programme) to debate with you how the WHO FCTC has been implemented internationally, by identifying achievements, loopholes, barriers, and the new challenges ahead.

The Symposium will be held in English with simultaneous translation into/from Spanish.

Registration is free, thanks to governmental and institutional support.

We kindly ask you to publicize the Symposium in your organization and your contacts: do not hesitate to forward this email and posting the announcement in your corporate website or blog, but also in Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or other (institutional or personal) social networks.

Looking forward to personally meeting you!
