Anusthana: Scaling Implementation of Tobacco Control Laws

This is a research study that aims to understand how to enhance and scale implementation of Cigarette and Other Tobacco Products Act (COTPA) in India. It’s been a more than a decade that the COTPA was enacted. It has worked in some places/contexts/settings better than in others. This study is an attempt to systematically understand how and why the implementation of this law has occurred across Indian states. The study will be conducted in five phases using quantitative and qualitative methods to map the implementation landscape and using theory-driven inquiry to draw lessons.

This study is supported through India Alliance early-career clinical and public health fellowship awarded to Pragati Hebbar.
