STOP Tobacco Watchdog Partners Chosen

Bloomberg Philanthropies has chosen the University of Bath, the Global Centre for Good Governance in Tobacco Control, and the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease to lead the Stopping Tobacco Organizations and Products (STOP) initiative.
 
The partners, based in the UK, Thailand and France, will receive $20 million in support from Bloomberg Philanthropies to expose deceptive tobacco industry practices, publishing investigative reports detailing lobbying tactics and marketing strategies and equipping low- and middle-income countries to push back against industry influence.
 
The new initiative "will protect consumers by shining a light on the tobacco industry's underhanded tactics, including marketing directly to children," said Michael R. Bloomberg, Agence France Presse reported.
