Cardiovascular harms from tobacco use and secondhand smoke

This report brings together data from two ongoing major global tobacco research and surveillance studies – the International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation Project (the ITC Project) and the Global Tobacco Surveillance System (GTSS) – to examine people’s awareness of the cardiovascular risks of tobacco use, and secondhand smoke exposure. The World Heart Federation led this initiative in pursuit of its commitment to help people achieve longer and better lives through prevention and control of heart disease and stroke, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries.
