Over the past two decades, global patterns in tobacco production and trade have shifted dramatically. Considerable research has gone into detailing these shifts, elucidating their drivers, and understanding their implications for tobacco control. One area of research that remains relatively unexplored, however, is how these changes have altered the global flow of tobacco and the associated implications for tobacco control. The Foundation’s report on global trends in tobacco production and trade represents our first step toward understanding the global flow of tobacco and what it may mean for our efforts to create a smoke-free world.
