Building knowledge for action through research
Tobacco control research at The Union focuses on describing the burden of tobacco-related disease, identifying links between tobacco use and other diseases such as tuberculosis, understanding the underlying drivers of tobacco use and helping people to stop smoking. This work is conducted by the Department of Lung Health and Non-Communicable Diseases.
