TOBACCO CONTROL TRAINING AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH
SPECIAL DISCOUNT FOR ATCA MEMBERS
Harvard University School of Public Health will be organizing a Global Tobacco Control course from the 20th to the 21st April 2021. The course will explore emerging trends, targeting disparities (gender, income, global region), understanding why vulnerable populations are at a higher risk, and how to translate this evidence into tobacco control priorities and policies.
Participants of this course will:
- Discuss the practice and principles of evidence-informed approaches to tobacco control, in the context of the challenges facing developing countries in the twenty first century.
- Understand the history and driving factors in the global tobacco epidemic and major successes and challenges to the present time.
- Critically evaluate evidence on the effectiveness of key MPOWER interventions.
- Describe current or emerging disparities in tobacco use in a selected global region and identify best practice policy responses.
Registration for the online course is ongoing. The course will be organised exclusively in English, and cost $620. However, given that the African Tobacco Control Alliance (ATCA) is a collaborating partner in this initiative, a special discount of close to 20% is offered to ATCA members.
