The Global Center for Good Governance in Tobacco Control (GGTC) is a combination of the academic discipline, diversity, and global reach of the School of Global Studies, Thammasat University and the expertise of Southeast Asia Tobacco Control Alliance (SEATCA)’s leaders in countering tobacco industry interference to move tobacco control measures forward at the national, regional, and global levels.
With the support of the Ministry of Public Health Thailand, GGTC was designated by the FCTC Secretariat to serve as the Knowledge Hub on Article 5.3 to promote the tobacco control treaty obligation on protecting public health policies against tobacco industry interference.
We aim to lead in providing the world with the capacity to promote policy coherence in tobacco control and to counter tobacco industry interference at the national, regional, and global levels.
The Stop Tobacco Organizations & Products (STOP) project, funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, is aimed at establishing a tobacco industry watchdog. The project had been awarded to a partnership among the Global Center for Good Governance in Tobacco Control, Thailand, the Tobacco Control Research Group at the University of Bath, United Kingdom, and the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease and Vital Strategies, New York.
