Tobacco Surveillance Systems Can Move Control Efforts Forward

CDC’s “Our Global Voices”: If We Can Measure It, We Can Manage It: Tracking the Global Tobacco Epidemic
Lauren Bartell and Emily Ridgway discuss the use of the Global Tobacco Surveillance System (GTSS), a system “which has been internationally recognized as the global standard to systematically monitor youth and adult tobacco use and track key tobacco control indicators,” as well as the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) Atlas, which provides data using graphs and visuals to “illustrate the dynamics of tobacco use and tobacco control policies in a number of countries” (5/29).
