Tobacco Control

gh topics insetEGHI supports Emory faculty and staff addressing tobacco control issues. EGHI's projects aim to reduce tobacco use and its health, environmental, and economic burdens around the world.


The Emory Global Health Institute - China Tobacco Control Partnership (GHI-CTP) was established in 2008 by a five-year grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Dr. Jeffrey P. Koplan, Vice President for Global Health at Emory University, is the principal investigator for this program. The goal of the GHI-CTP is to reduce the health, social, environmental, and economic burdens of tobacco use in China. There are two main initiatives of the GHI-CTP, 1) Tobacco-Free Cities Program and 2) Programs of Excellence.
