The head of the National Secretariat of Tobacco Control in Iran, Behsad Valisadeh, has launched a 5-year tobacco control plan aimed at bringing Iran in line with the World Health Organisation’s Convention on Tobacco Control. The plan will begin with a pilot scheme to make Qom city tobacco-free, meaning that its residents will be shielded from second-hand smoke. The scheme will then be rolled out to 63 further cities and villages.
