Index of Tobacco Control Sustainability (ITCS): India Subnational Tobacco Control

A tool to measure the sustainability of tobacco control programs in cities and districts in India.

The Index of Tobacco Control Sustainability (ITCS) is a tool to assess and guide tobacco control programs to become sustainable. The main ITCS document was first produced in 2016, following the publication of research by The Union on the sustainability of national tobacco control programs in 24 countries.

The Union South-East Asia (USEA) and Vital Strategies acknowledge the collaborative efforts and support of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, the Government of India, state governments, and a multitude of experts throughout the country for their technical support and guidance in developing this index for tobacco control sustainability at the subnational level in India and introducing measures for advancing tobacco control in the country.
