ENSP is an international non-profit association, created in 1997 under Belgium law, which aims to reduce tobacco consumption & to develop a common strategy amongst organisations active in tobacco control throughout Europe, by sharing information & experience, through co-ordinated activities & projects, by creating synergies among public health advocates thus increasing their capacity to direct their actions more effectively. ENSP acts as the lynchpin for its members creating a central cohesive force for the European tobacco control movement.
ENSP’s vision for the future is to eliminate the suffering of European citizens caused by ill health & early death due to tobacco-related diseases. We want children & young people to be able to grow up without being targets of tobacco industry marketing seeking to lure them into a lifetime of addiction. We want clean air unpolluted by tobacco smoke for all European citizens. ENSP’s strategic goal is to make our continent completely smoke-free by 2040 & our first objective is to work towards full implementation of the FCTC in Europe by 2020.
Given that tobacco control is at different stages in different European countries, ENSP applies the best & most effective evidence in policy & practice to work together towards a shared goal. ENSP members can take advantage of past experience in other countries & adapt such experience to their own needs. ENSP members work together to agree on a common policy & speak together in one voice, thus strengthening the European tobacco control effort & reinforcing European public health messages.
To eliminate the use of tobacco products in Europe, ENSP believes above all that all European countries need to implement comprehensive tobacco control strategies, including high taxes, comprehensive bans on direct & indirect advertising of tobacco, smoking bans in public & all workplaces, introduce strong & large (80%) textual & pictorial warnings on standardised tobacco packages.
