GCRF Tobacco Capacity Control Programme
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the world. This programme is an international collaboration. It involves UK academics in five Universities who are all part of the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS), a UKCRC Centre for Public Health Excellence, along with research organisations in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Ghana, India, South Africa, and Uganda.
The overall aim of the programme is to improve research capacity in low- and middle-income countries to conduct high quality research that will generate evidence on how to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by tobacco use.
The team based in GHPU at the University of Edinburgh is focused on exploring the principal barriers experienced by governments in protecting public health policy from tobacco industry interference.
