Abstract

Sweden was one of the first countries in the world to take action against smoking. In 1964 the government started funding information and education activities on tobacco and health. During the 1970s and 1980s several governmental committees recommended stricter legislative measures against smoking but - unlike Finland and Norway - no legislation was introduced, except one law on labelling of tobacco packages (from 1977) and another law putting a few restrictions on tobacco advertising (from 1979). Why didn’t Sweden take firm action?
