The Global Tobacco Industry Interference Index (Global Tobacco Index) measures efforts by governments to address tobacco industry interference. Countries that scored well on the Global Tobacco Index have prevailed against tobacco industry interference by implementing measures to protect themselves.
This report is based on publicly available information on tobacco industry interference in countries and their respective governments’ responses to these interferences. Countries are ranked according to total scores provided by civil society groups. The lower the score, the lower the overall level of interference, which augurs well for the country.
