Emerging Tobacco Control Researcher Programme 2013

The Economics of Tobacco Control Project at the University of Cape Town is soliciting expressions of interest from potential participants in an Emerging Tobacco Control Researcher Programme to be held in Cape Town, South Africa in 2013.

The programme is to be held in partnership with the International Tobacco Control Research Program at the American Cancer Society and funded through a grant by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as part of the African Tobacco Control Consortium.

The programme is expected to take place in October 2013 and participants will spend a week in residence in Cape Town participating in workshops on tobacco control research.

This year the programme will focus on the economics of tobacco control, with a  particular interest in poverty and tobacco use, and will explore the use of existing survey instruments including expenditure surveys and demographic and health surveys.
