The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has been designated as one of five coordinating partners for Michael R. Bloomberg’s Global Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use in low and middle-income countries, where more than two-thirds of the world’s smokers live. As part of this initiative, the Campaign has established a global advocacy resource center to provide accurate public information about tobacco use and effective tobacco control interventions and to assist advocates with resources and technical assistance to achieve policy change. The Campaign closely collaborates with the Bloomberg Initiative partners: the World Health Organization, International Union against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and CDC Foundation.
