The Department of Tobacco Control publishes practical guides, toolkits and factsheets to equip professionals working to reduce tobacco use. They are designed to be used by governments, civil society, and media. Our material is informed by both academic and practical expertise – because we work at the grassroots of tobacco control in locations around the world, the resources we publish are both detailed, and appropriate to the range of political, legal and cultural contexts.
Notable recent publications include:
