Protecting Children and Families from Tobacco: Leadership Training

Protecting Children and Families from Tobacco: Leadership Training


November 14, 2012, Cartagena de Indias, Colombia


Pre-Congress Session at the ALAPE Annual Meeting


Since 2010, the International Pediatric Association (IPA) and the AAP have developed global child health and tobacco initiatives to raise awareness and promote involvement of child health clinicians worldwide in calling attention to the impact of tobacco and secondhand smoke on children and youth. For the first time, the Richmond Center, in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), is partnering with the Latin American Association of Pediatrics (ALAPE) to offer a pre-congress workshop on tobacco control at its annual meeting. The day-long training is designed for clinical leaders, country pediatric society representatives, and country health ministry tobacco control representatives to improve the effectiveness of tobacco control advocacy by pediatric leaders, and provide participants with the knowledge and tools to advance efforts to protect children and youth from tobacco.
