This monograph examines the current research and evidence base surrounding the economics of tobacco control – including tobacco use, tobacco growing, manufacturing and trade, tobacco product taxes and prices, and tobacco control policies and other interventions to reduce tobacco use and its consequences. This information can help direct future research and inform tobacco prevention and control programs and policies in countries around the world. The study, peer-reviewed by more than 70 scientific experts, concludes that the cost far outweighs global revenues from tobacco taxes, and that governments vastly underuse tools to reduce tobacco use and associated deaths.
