In June 2018, The Union launched a new Global Enforcement Programme funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies. This is a pilot programme running for three years in two cities in each of the following countries: China, Indonesia, India and Pakistan.

The focus is on sub-national support, working with city governments to increase compliance with laws on smoke-free and tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship (TAPS) ban at points of sale.

The Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health is supporting the programme by conducting pre- and post-compliance surveys in each city. The baseline surveys have already taken place in China and Indonesia; India and Pakistan surveys will be completed this year. In addition to the program activity in each city, a global resource hub is being developed to share learning, tools, resources and case studies with other cities and countries across the globe.
