The International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation Project (the
ITC Project) is the first-ever international cohort survey of tobacco use. It is designed to assist policy makers in the implementation of strong evidence-based tobacco control policies. The ITC Project is a transdisciplinary collaborative effort with international health organizations and policy makers in 20 countries currently, inhabited by 50% of the world’s population, 60% of the world’s smokers, and 70% of the world’s tobacco users. Each ITC survey is guided by a common conceptual model, standard protocols and analytic approach, and includes measures designed to evaluate each FCTC policy domain. Using rigorous survey research methods and policy evaluation designs, the ITC Project is evaluating the impact of FCTC policies as they are being implemented in many countries throughout the world, including key low- and middle-income countries, where the tobacco epidemic will exact its greatest toll.
