“I have worked in the fight against
tobacco in my country for many
years and believe that we have
come a long way. However, the
SOME
adoption of the anti-smoking
law is now delayed because of
interference from the tobacco

CHALLENGES TO WORKING IN TOBACCO CONTROL

ALWAYS “My institution advises the Ministry


of Health in all aspects of tobacco.
The main challenge now is the
OFTEN
implementation of the law and the
evaluation of the implementation,
to be able to carry out social control
SOMETIMES measures. The main problem
is lack of resources and not
enough support from international
NEVER
organizations” –Colombia

This assessment was conducted by the Global
Tobacco Control Research Network (GTRN) in
September 2009. The respondents (N=70) were members
of the Latin American Coordinating Committee on Tobacco
Control (CLACCTA) and pre-registered participants in the 2nd
SRNT-IAHF Latin American Conference on Tobacco Control.

Support was provided by the Global Tobacco Research


Network (GTRN) through an unrestricted grant from
GlaxoSmithKline to the Institute for Global Tobacco Control
at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

To view the assessment results go to the GTRN website at


www.tobaccoresearch.net.

The GTRN is a virtual web of interconnected individuals and


organizations collaborating in the conduct and dissemination
of tobacco-control research in support of a progressive
policy-relevant agenda.
