Our research is grouped within six main themes.

Smoke-free Policies, Shisha and Tobacco Packaging
Covid-19 and Tobacco
Research & Implementation Methods
The research within this programme are organised around addressing three main research themes: tobacco taxation, illicit trade and 5.3/ industry interference. These centre on core tobacco control issues that directly engage with broader challenges in global health and development, constitute priorities in the implementation of the Framework Convention of Tobacco Control (FCTC), and respond to local needs identified by our research partners and by government officials.
The overall design of the research is intended to balance feasibility and coherence with responsiveness to locally identified priorities. Research in each of the countries will mainly address the priority areas identified above, creating efficiencies in training and support and enabling the development of comparative research across country contexts. In addition, each country team has identified locally significant research issue(s) in tobacco control, focusing on topics such as smoking cessation and smoke-free public places.
