Program Overview

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

The program is designed to promote international research collaborations between investigators in the U.S. and scientists/institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to pursue research on tobacco control and prevention in LMICs.

The program allows investigators in the U.S. and upper-middle-income countries to gain expertise working under LMIC-specific conditions where tobacco consumption poses a public health challenge. It also strengthens the research base of the participating institutions, in particular in the LMICs. To this end, research capacity strengthening in LMICs must be an integrated and significant part of the research application.
