This report highlights what we do and do not know about electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). These products and the ways they are used change quickly, but the report looks at current knowledge and gaps in evidence, including:

  • Historical background
  • Patterns of use
  • Health effects
  • Effects of policy and practice

It ends with a call to action to speed up policies and programs that can reduce young people’s use of e-cigarettes.
