A global program to reduce tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries was launched in 2006 with funds from Bloomberg Philanthropies. A competitively awarded grants program is an important part of the Program. The grants program supports projects to develop and deliver high-impact tobacco control interventions.
The grants program is managed by the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
Round Three of the grants program is now open. Submission of Project Ideas is invited online. The deadline for submission is 23.30h US EST (GMT -5) on Thursday 17 January 2008.
Proposals must focus on achieving policy change that will lead to substantial reductions in tobacco use.
Priority will be given to projects that lead to sustainable improvements in tobacco policies, in particular:
• tax and price measures, including anti-smuggling measures
• establishment of smoke-free workplaces and public places
• direct and indirect advertising bans
• other evidence-based regulatory/legislative initiatives
• effective mass media -- strategic media, advertising, message dissemination campaigns -- and programs targeting the general population and sub-population groups
• Model Smoke-Free Jurisdictions
