The Union has joined forces with organisations from across the globe to expose the tobacco industry’s efforts to interfere with tobacco control, as part of STOP.

STOP (Stopping Tobacco Organizations and Products) is a new global tobacco industry watchdog group funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies and collectively directed by The University of Bath, The Global Centre for Good Governance in Tobacco Control, The Union, and Vital Strategies.

Launched in December 2018, STOP is working to expose the tobacco industry’s efforts to hook a new generation of smokers, attempts to undermine tobacco control, work to derail policy and unethical business practices.

The Union is supporting the broad strategy of the project by creating in-country connections and synergizing with those already doing industry interference work on the ground.

The Union’s role in the project is also to facilitate linking to and coordinating with the wider Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use network.

Overall, STOP aims to expose tobacco industry tactics in all forms and arm stakeholders with evidence and tools to effectively counter the industry and advance policy.
