Civil society shaping tobacco control in the Caribbean

The cover photo of the Caribbean reportAround the world the challenges faced by tobacco control advocates are similar: accessing funding and other resources, influencing policy makers, the tobacco industry, the tobacco industry and the tobacco industry.

This is why it’s always useful to learn about routes that colleagues have taken to overcome these barriers. The Jamaica Coalition for Tobacco Control (JCTC) and the Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC) have recently published a document full of such experiences and advice, designed to assist those working in tobacco control and in the broader fight against non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
