Abstract: In the European region, tobacco is responsible for 16% of all deaths in adults and 12% of all deaths in the Maltese population. While locally, fewer adult females smoke when compared to males, there is an increasing trend of smoking amongst females whilst in males we are seeing a decline. Also, while mortality rates in males from lung cancer in Malta are much higher than in females, a downward trend is being observed in males, whilst in females mortality rates are showing a slowly rising trend.
