Podcast: The Economics of Tobacco Control (Part 2)
The International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation Project (ITC Project), founded in 2002, systematically evaluates key policies of the WHO FCTC in 22 countries, containing more than 50% of the world’s population, 60% of the world’s smokers and 70% of the world’s tobacco users.
In this podcast Corne Van Walbeek, guest editor of the supplement, speaks to Geoffrey T Fong, University of Waterloo, and Frank J. Chaloupka, University of Illinois, about the 13 papers in the supplement and the links between the results across different countries.
