Capacity Building

The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) Secretariat has created six Knowledge Hubs worldwide, to support Parties to implement the Convention. The Economics of Tobacco Control Project (now the Research Unit on the Economics of Excisable Products (REEP)), based at the University of Cape Town (UCT), was asked to host a Knowledge Hub (KH) on Tobacco Taxation and Illicit Trade (Articles 6 and 15 of the FCTC). The KH aims to support governments with Articles 6 and 15 of the WHO FCTC through targeted training opportunities, direct technical assistance, and by producing appropriate tools and resources (e.g. through a web platform). This work will performed within  a partnership network with other stakeholders, and by developing a community of practice with other Knowledge Hubs.
