Project SILNE-R Horizon 2020
SILNE-R: Enhancing the effectiveness of programs and strategies to prevent smoking by adolescents: a realist evaluation comparing seven European countries.
The main aim of this collaborative European project is to learn through in-depth comparisons between seven European countries how strategies and programs to prevent youth smoking could enhance their effectiveness by taking into account the opportunities, barriers and resources present at local levels.
- To assess how recent strategies and programs to prevent youth smoking have been implemented at national, municipal and school levels and how they have influenced smoking behaviour of 16 year old adolescents in seven European countries.
- To develop and to disseminate the fine-grained evidence that is needed to support decision makers in implementing strategies to prevent youth smoking in local settings. With due attention for program costs and for inequalities in smoking.
SILNE-R Recommendations to prevent youth smoking were developed by The Tobacco Free Research Institute Ireland in Dublin for seven European countries to prevent youth smoking. These recommendations were made at national, local and school levels for all of the seven countries. Click on the links below and you will find: National-Level Recommendations to prevent youth smoking and Local-level Recommendations to prevent youth smoking.
We also made recommendations to prevent youth smoking in each of the 7 cities in The Netherlands, Portugal, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Finland. You will find the fine-grained national, local and school level recommendations for each of the seven cities by clicking on the city links: Amersfoort, Coimbra, Dublin, Namur, Hannover, Latina, and Tampere.
