A new report, independently commissioned by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care of the U.K., provides cutting-edge recommendations with the aim of achieving a "Smokefree 2030." This reflects the U.K. government's ambition to reduce the smoking rate from 13.5% to 5% by the end of this decade. Authored by Javed Khan OBE, MD, and released by the British government on June 9, 2022, the report, "The Khan Review: Making Smoking Obsolete," assesses the impact of the public health policies currently in place and finds that, "without further action, England will miss the smokefree 2030 target by at least 7 years, and the poorest areas in society will not meet it until 2044."
