Benin scores below the average scores of the four comparison groups: its region, income group, global average, and top performing countries. Benin would greatly benefit from improvements to its cigarette tax system.
Benin scores in the mid-range in tax structure, but scores poorly across the other three components. Improvements can be made by increasing cigarette prices, reducing cigarette affordability, and increasing the tax share of price.
