The Knowledge Hub has published a sixth Back to Basics (B2B) policy brief in the series covering various topics on tobacco taxation, titled: Calculating the Economic Cost of Smoking.

To date, we have issued five 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 and #5: The Solution to Illicit Trade.

Published under the banner of the WHO FCTC Knowledge Hub on Tobacco Taxation and Illicit Trade, these one-page 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.
