ITC Cross-Country Comparison Report Tobacco Price and Taxation
The International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation Project (the ITC Project) was created in 2002 as an evidence-gathering system for evaluating the effectiveness of tobacco control policies of the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC).
This report presents research findings and cross-country comparisons on key indicators of effectiveness of price and tax policies across countries of the ITC Project. A primary objective of the ITC Project, and of this report, is to disseminate findings on the effectiveness of tax measures to policy makers and other public health stakeholders to promote strong evidence-based policies on price and tax, as required by Article 6 of the FCTC.
