Harvard’s Center for Global Tobacco Control

The Center for Global Tobacco Control’s mission is to reduce the global burden of tobacco-related death and disease through training, research, and the translation of science into public health policies and programs. The Center works with governmental, academic, and research scientists throughout the world to design and implement strategies for reducing smoking prevalence rates. Current research areas include: collection of biomarker measures of human exposure to tobacco toxins; secondhand smoke measurement and characterization; assessment of consumer responses to tobacco products and messaging; and GPS tracking for assessing location of public tobacco advertising within communities.
