ABSTRACT
Although many health organizations have acknowledged women's tobacco control as a public health priority, to date there has not been a national agenda, nor a coordinating mechanism in place, to ensure the reduction of women's tobacco use and exposure. The Women United Against Tobacco Workshop (the Workshop) was held to address these gaps. The consensus of the Workshop is represented by the National Women's Tobacco Control Plan (the Plan) which outlines goals, priorities, recommendations and implementation steps for reducing women's tobacco use and exposure. The development of a national organization dedicated to implementing the Plan is key to preserving the momentum gained at the Workshop.
