Tobacco control research at LSHTM

There is a diverse range of tobacco control research being done at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including public health, epidemiology, political science, economics and history.

Current work includes investigations into the connections between globalisation and the tobacco industry and the influence of the tobacco industry on policy and science through analysis of internal tobacco industry documents; analysis of the impacts of tobacco industry privatisation; epidemiological analysis of smoking patterns across countries in central and eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union; work on the impacts of and influences on tobacco control policies in the UK and the European Union.

Additional work is examining the history of post-World War II smoking policy in the United Kingdom.
