2005 Report on Activities

02.11.2007 |

Dear colleagues and friends, several years of cultivating educational activities in our discipline and the continuously improving clinical background have contributed significantly to the formation of a support platform on which it was possible to establish the Centre for Addictology of the Psychiatric Clinic of the 1st Faculty of Medicine and the General Teaching Hospital in 2005. However, I believe that it is important to distinguish between the emergence of the discipline as such, the accreditation of the field of study, and the establishment of the Centre for Addictology. The three steps are connected; however, they cannot be seen as a completely homogeneous process.

Tobacco harm reduction: an alternative cessation strategy for inveterate smokers

10.09.2007 | MUDr. Tomáš Zábranský Ph.D.

This report provides a description of traditional and modern smokeless tobacco products, and of the prevalence of their use in the United States and Sweden. It reviews the epidemiologic evidence for low health risks associated with smokeless use, both in absolute terms and in comparison to the much higher risks of smoking. The report also describes evidence that smokeless tobacco has served as an effective substitute for cigarettes among Swedish men, who consequently have among the lowest smoking-related mortality rates in the developed world. The report documents the fact that extensive misinformation about ST products is widely available from ostensibly reputable sources, including governmental health agencies and major health organizations.

Delegations from Member States of the United Nations Organisation met at the 20th General Assembly in June 1998. Czech representatives included the then Prime Minister, Josef Tošovský, and the Secretary of the National Drug Commission, Pavel Bém. They signed the declaration on behalf of the Czech Republic. Other signatories included Koffi Annan, the Secretary-General of the UNO, Pino Arlacchi, the Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and representatives of another 184 states. The declaration gave the world community an unambiguous and ambitious goal: to substantially reduce substance use, as well as the growing and production of drugs, by 2008.
