​Governmental initiatives. An outline of the period 1964–1993

Many activities were planned and carried through, information activities, legislation, restriction, cessation, prevention, research etc. This outline is limited to the public authorities’ tobacco-control initiatives. Both individuals and voluntary organizations also carried out extensive efforts in the field.
