The Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use works in low- and middle-income countries around the world to promote proven tobacco control policies that are helping to combat the global tobacco epidemic.
The Bloomberg Initiative emphasizes the implementation of evidence-based policies shown to reduce tobacco use. To track our progress and monitor policy changes, we use high-quality tools and practices.
The Bloomberg Initiative works through a global network of partners to support and defend countries implementing comprehensive tobacco control policies. Our partner organizations include: the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, the CDC Foundation, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, the World Health Organization, Vital Strategies, and the University of Illinois – Chicago. Bloomberg Philanthropies and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation joined together to launch the Anti-Tobacco Litigation Fund.
