Our organization

In order to achieve its goals, AT Schweiz as an association seeks a broad membership of organizations and individuals who support the strategy outlined here. In doing so, AT Schweiz draws on the existing resources of all other actors, networks with them and coordinates their work. All organizations are interlocking cogs in the machine of tobacco control. AT Schweiz is the central cog in the wheel.
AT Schweiz acts with a focus on the four strategic fields of action – denormalization of tobacco consumption, protection of young people / non-initiation, smoking cessation, and protection against passive smoking – and in the four strategic business areas (advocacy, knowledge management, communication, coordination, and networking) on the way to a tobacco- and nicotine-free Switzerland.

AT Switzerland

... offers its members a broad network of experts and specialists for the dissemination and acquisition of expertise on tobacco control and prevention.
... is committed to a sustainable, healthy and smoke-free Switzerland through evidence-based services and the networking of key stakeholders.
