Tobacco consumption is the major single cause for premature deaths in the European Union (EU).
Special Eurobarometer 458/2017 indicates that over a quarter (26%) of European citizens are currently smoking, and an increase in consumption amongst young people aged 15-24 is observed since 2014 (from 24% to 29%). Smoking within the EU is estimated to cause 700.000 deaths annually, half of which are among 35–69-year-olds. As smoking is responsible for half the difference in deaths across socio-economic groups, tobacco control has a major role to play in reducing health and social inequalities.
ENSP plays a major role in the EU to prevent the tobacco industry from biasing and slowing down the tobacco control community effort. Key objectives for 2018 are:
O.1 - To assist and support the European Institutions with the complete implementation of tobacco control legislation, through the effective transposition and enforcement of the TPD (2014/40/EU) and the implementation of the WHO FCTC - through the provision of solid scientific evidence and awareness raising at the EU level.
O. 2 -To strengthen advocacy capacity at EU MS National level, and more particularly to empower Civil Society organisations, Policy Makers, academics, experts and all other relevant stakeholders through the provision of science based evidence, increased health literacy, promotion of healthy lifestyle decisions, disease prevention and improving access to tobacco dependence treatment, through a wide range of channels and innovative tools
O. 3 - To reduce health inequalities due to tobacco use at the micro level, through focusing on the 3rd Health Programme thematic priority areas and tobacco use, and through the engagement of youth in tobacco control activities
O.4 - To enhance the sustainability of the actions performed through the Operating Grant so as to ensure the strategic long term development and return on EU investment in the post Operating Grant period

The Smoke Free Partnership (SFP) is the only Coalition of national, pan-European and international NGOs working exclusively on EU policy analysis and advocacy linked to the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). Since its creation in 2005, SFP has led many successful campaigns to advance important EU smoking prevention policy areas, most notably European smoke-free policies and the Tobacco Products Directive, but also the EU Tobacco Tax Directive and policies against illicit tobacco trade. SFP has been recognised for its tobacco control work by the World Health Organisation with the World No Tobacco Day Award in 2011. SFP was also a recipient of the American Cancer Society’s 2015 Luther L. Terry Award for outstanding global achievement and exemplary leadership in Tobacco Control.
This application demonstrates how our strategic objectives directly respond to the first three specific priority areas of the 2017 Call for Proposals for Operating Grants. In particular, SFP and its Coalition Partners will assist the EU institutions and national governments with information and evidence-based intelligence and advice for the development of smoking prevention policies and the promotion of healthy lifestyles to prevent cancer and chronic diseases at EU and national level with a special focus on young people, reducing health inequalities, and promoting health in all policies. SFP will contributing to civil dialogue processes to increase public authorities’ commitment in this area by spearheading successful campaigns and building advocacy capacity among civil society organisations. This application also describes how we will contribute to the objectives of the European Solidarity Corps.
Based on our previous track record of producing results, this application also demonstrates how SFP and its Coalition partners will continue to contribute to the overarching and specific objectives of the Third Health Programme (2014-2020).
