Abstract
This report outlines findings from a systematic review of the evidence concerning the effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions that reduce the rates of premature death in disadvantaged areas through proactive case finding, retention and access to services. This includes: assessing the evidence on interventions aimed at finding and then supporting adults living in disadvantaged areas who are at higher than average risk of premature death; and assessing the evidence on interventions aimed at providing - and improving access to - services for adults living in disadvantaged areas, with a higher than average risk of premature death. The review focuses not just on smokers living in disadvantaged areas but also disadvantaged and manual groups more broadly, including pregnant women.
