WHO expounds the importance and relevance of tobacco product regulation, in the context of wider tobacco control, in the two online courses now available on Open WHO. These courses address key questions on product regulation, with respect to the contents, emissions and design characteristics of these products and make WHO’s handbooks on tobacco product regulation more accessible. By the end of the courses, participants should better understand the basics of tobacco product regulation, the principles of testing, and how these can be applied to their country context.
A certificate of achievement will be issued to those who complete the course material and earn at least 80% of the maximum number of points from all graded assignments. Both courses are freely accessible to the public at openwho.org
