About us
The results of [STOP’s] Global Tobacco Index have exposed tobacco industry interference in public health tobacco control policies.

Brenda Chitindi, Executive Director of Tobacco Free Association of Zambia

WHO commends STOP’s work to shine a spotlight on the deceptive tactics of the tobacco industry, and their aim to equip policymakers and public health advocates with information to combat industry influence.

Dr. Ruediger Krech, Director, Department of Health Promotion, World Health Organization

Exposing the industry's use of grants, charity and other forms of sponsorship for twisting government policies and manipulating the public in its favour would not have been possible without STOP's support.
