Raise taxes on tobacco

Course Description

This workshop addresses the impact of tobacco price and affordability on consumption, types of tobacco taxes, administration of taxes and the myths used by the tobacco industry to deter increases in tobacco taxes.

Participants will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to counter myths and to build a successful dialogue with ministries of finance to implement tobacco taxes and other related fiscal policies required by Article 6 of the FCTC. The course is accessible to participants without a specific tax or economic background, but also provides detailed information and discussion that will be useful to those responsible for the administration of fiscal policies related to tobacco.
