    Antecedentes En 2005, Uruguay inició una serie de amplias medidas contra el tabaquismo. El objetivo fue evaluar el efecto de la campaña anti-tabaco en Uruguay.Métodos Se realizó un análisis de tendencias basado en la población, utilizando como control a la vecina Argentina, que no ha establecido medidas tan extensas anti-tabaco. Se evaluaron tres variables clave en ambos países: consumo de cigarrillos por persona según registros de impuestos, la prevalencia del consumo de tabaco en adolescentes, medida por encuestas de escolares y la prevalencia del consumo de tabaco en los adultos, según las encuestas de hogares del país.Resultados Durante 2005-11, el consumo de cigarrillos por persona en Uruguay disminuyó en un 4,3% al año (95% CI 2,4 a 6,2), mientras que en Argentina aumentó un 0,6% por año (-1 • 2 a 2,5; p = 0,002 para la diferencia en las tendencias). Durante 2003-09, la prevalencia de 30 días de consumo de tabaco en estudiantes uruguayos de 13 años, 15 años, y 17 años disminuyó en un estimado de 8,0% por año (4,5 a 11,6), en comparación con una disminución de 2,5% anual (0,5 a 4,5) en los estudiantes argentinos durante 2001-09 (p=0,02 para la diferencia en las tendencias). De 2005 a 2011, la prevalencia de consumo de tabaco en Uruguay disminuyó anualmente a una tasa estimada del 3,3% (2,4 a 4,1), en comparación con un año disminuir en la Argentina del 1,7% (0,8 a 2,6) (p = 0,02 para la diferencia en las tendencias).Interpretación: la campaña de control del tabaco global de Uruguay se ha asociado con una sustancial y sin precedentes disminución del consumo de tabaco. La disminución en el consumo de tabaco en otros países de ingresos bajos y medianos ingresos tendría un efecto sustancial de la magnitud observada en Uruguay sobre la futura carga global de enfermedades relacionadas con el tabaco.www.thelancet.com Published online September 14, 2012
