Health-in All Policy and Tobacco Control

This project aimed at examining how different sectors, beyond health, and their sectoral policies have historically shaped tobacco control in India. Apart from sectoral policies, we also tracked how judicial activism and various litigations have impacted tobacco control in India. We looked at the published and grey literature, including litigations and did document analysis. This work was primarily funded by the Institute of Public Health.
