Abstract
To keep abreast of strategies and actions of the tobacco industry to interfere in tobacco control and take effective measures. Monitoring tobacco industry related news, websites, social media and publications in an all-round way and watching tobacco policies, marketing, promotion and other activities that interfere in tobacco control closely. Having been engaging in tracking and monitoring the tobacco industry for eight years, Think Tank Research Center for Health Development has timely disclosed the tobacco industry’s activities that went against the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. We worked with public interest lawyers and made complaints to related legal authorities, as a result, illegal activities of the tobacco industry have been stopped, investigated and dealt with. Relative information has been publicized and spread through media to expose and crack down on all activities minimizing harm of smoking and misleading the public. Think Tank Research Center’s exploration into and practice in tracking tobacco are comprehensive, documentary, timely and well directed. Tracking and monitoring of our civil institution have strongly fought back against the tobacco industry’s anti-tobacco control activities! We call on that a national-wide, all-inclusive and systematic monitoring system should be established for the tobacco industry.
