Africa, a new frontier for tobacco companies, is witnessing a smoking epidemic. These short videos provide an introduction to tobacco use in Africa some of the successes in addressing the devastating effects of tobacco use and the challenges to progress, including tobacco industry influence.
These videos were made in conjunction with the African Tobacco Situation Analysis Project (ATSA), an initiative supported by IDRC in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Learn more about how this project helped African advocates and researchers identify barriers and opportunities to tobacco control in their countries. They achieved ground-breaking success through focussing their efforts on key advocacy, policy and legislative strategies.
Through creative mass education, pressuring the tobacco industry and engaging with governments to strengthen legislation, African tobacco control advocates are protecting people from the harmful effects of tobacco use.
