Global Program


Overview

CCP’s Global Program on Tobacco Control is funded in large part by the Bloomberg Initiative and works in partnership with the Institute for Global Tobacco Control at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, World Health Organization, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, CDC Foundation, International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, and the World Lung Foundation. These organizations work together, along with in-country partners, to implement and coordinate activities to help stop the epidemic of tobacco use in middle and low-income countries where 80% of the world’s smokers live. As a member of the partnership, CCP is providing cross-cutting support to the Institute and other partners in the areas of knowledge management, strategic planning, and capacity building.
