ASH (Action on Smoking and Health)



Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) was by the Royal College of Physicians. It is a campaigning public health charity that works to eliminate the harm caused by tobacco. We do not attack smokers or condemn smoking. While we aim to be innovative and agenda setting in our work, our policies are always evidence based and follow a dual approach: Information and networking: To develop opinion and awareness about the “tobacco epidemic” and Advocacy and campaigning: To press for policy measures that will reduce the burden of addiction, disease and premature death attributable to tobacco.
