The Knowledge Hub has published the twelfth Back to Basics (B2B) policy brief in the series covering various topics on tobacco taxation, titled: Tobacco Industry Interference and Tobacco Taxation. This B2B was prepared in partnership with the Global Center for Good Governance in Tobacco Control (GGTC), the WHO FCTC Knowledge Hub on Article 5.3.

To date, we have issued 11 other briefs: #1 on Tobacco Taxes and Tax Administration, #2: The Rationale for Tobacco Tax and Price Measures, #3: a Call for Open Access Data on Tobacco Taxation, B2B #4: Price elasticity, #5: The Solution to Illicit Trade; #6: Calculating the Economic Cost of Smoking; #7: Court Cases and Litigation (prepared in partnership with the McCabe Centre for Law & Cancer, the WHO FCTC Knowledge Hub on Legal Challenges), #8: The TETSiM Model, #9: Tobacco Taxation Systems: Ideal Tax Structure, #10: Tobacco Tax Earmarking, and #11 Setting the Ideal Tobacco Tax Rate.

Published under the banner of the WHO FCTC Knowledge Hub on Tobacco Taxation and Illicit Trade, these briefs are accessible and easy to read, yet still contain the most important information regarding various tobacco-taxation topics.

Look out for the next in the series soon.
