Medium Grants Competition in Support of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control

The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FTCT) is a treaty that promotes international action to protect present and future generations from the devastating health, social, environmental and economic consequences of tobacco consumption and exposure to tobacco smoke. The FCTC was founded on the realization that the global tobacco epidemic is such that no country can manage it alone, no matter how effective its tobacco control legislation.

This project will support high quality, timely research to inform and guide tobacco control policy efforts and decision-making with respect to the FCTC in low- and middle-income countries. The project will also support capacity-building and networking between tobacco control researchers.
