Tobacco use kills more than 8 million people each year. Addressing the wide-ranging health and economic harms of tobacco use requires long-term commitments from governments, especially in emerging economies where tobacco use is at its greatest.
Vital Strategies and The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease has released The Index of Tobacco Control Sustainability (ITCS) data evaluating the sustainability of national tobacco control programs.
The ITCS is a set of 31 indicators: policies, structures and resources that are important factors for a sustainable national tobacco control program. The greater the number of indicators a country has in place, the greater its ITCS score and likelihood a country is to have a sustainable tobacco control program.
