What is the project?

SmokeHaz is a collaboration between the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS). The two organisations agreed to join forces, and work with the European Lung Foundation (ELF), to provide a website aimed at policy makers primarily focused on the respiratory health hazards associated with smoking.

The research has been independently funded by the ERS and has been carried out by the UKCTAS with the oversight of the ERS Tobacco Control Committee (TCC). The content of the website has been approved by the Executive Committee of ERS and developed by the ELF.

To ensure the strictest independence and integrity of the science, the research has omitted any declared or identifiable studies from the tobacco industry.
