Revealed: The Free-Market Groups Helping the Tobacco Industry

January 23, 2019

A database from the Guardian that shows that more than 100 think tanks from two dozen countries were supporting industry efforts to curb tobacco control policies. Policy makers, advocates and journalists can search a database of those groups to see the evidence that supports the think tanks’ involvement as third-party messengers. We encourage stakeholders to send us names of organizations that may be acting as agents of the industry so that we can expose new groups that threaten to derail effective tobacco control.
