The COVID-19 pandemic posed significant challenges for the tobacco control community, mainly because it was at the top of the political and legislative agendas of the countries in the region. However, this context also served to highlight the relevance of public health policies in the population and, among other things, showed how the consequences of these policies transcend the health sector. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the achievements in tobacco control during the pandemic and to reflect on challenges still pending in the region.
