Program Overview

The International Tobacco and Health Research and Capacity Building Program aims to encourage trans-disciplinary research to the international tobacco epidemic and to reduce the global burden of morbidity and mortality caused by tobacco use.

The program allows investigators in the U.S. and other high income countries to gain expertise working under low- and middle-income specific conditions. It also strengthens the research base of the U.S. and foreign institutions, especially those institutions in low- and middle-income countries. To this end, capacity strengthening must be an integrated and significant part of the research proposal.
