Interested in tobacco related issues?

Join Our Wales Tobacco
or Health Network


The Wales Tobacco or Health Network (WTHN) is a network for all individuals in Wales with an interest in tobacco and with an interest in the wider determinants of health and health inequalities. Increasingly, the links between tobacco use and a range of other health and wellbeing issues are being further researched and understood. The network not only focuses on smoking and tobacco control but also on the wider issues surrounding smoking and tobacco use.

The meetings cover issues such as:

  • Smoking cessation, smokefree spaces, illegal tobacco, electronic cigarettes, niche tobacco and prevention interventions
  • The link between tobacco use and increased tobacco consumption
  • How tobacco use contributes to child poverty
  • The link between tobacco use and mental health
  • Ensuring under-represented and non-represented groups are able to access health promotion and treatment services
  • Addressing multiple risk behaviours in young people
