About GATS Atlas
This Atlas presents tobacco statistics from 22 GATS countries in a visual format – using data that cover nearly 60 percent of the world’s population.
Following the MPOWER framework, and incorporating the WHO FCTC Articles, it describes the range of tobacco products, and represents statistics on tobacco use, secondhand smoke exposure, cessation, warnings about the dangers of tobacco, bans on advertising, promotion and sponsorship, and tobacco taxes. Progress and opportunities for further actions in 22 GATS countries are also highlighted.
The Atlas serves as a resource for decision makers, public health professionals, advocates, researchers, and media as they work to advance social policies.
Countries are encouraged to incorporate GATS questions in their own national surveys to obtain standardized and comparable statistics.
Funding for GATS is provided by Bloomberg Philanthropies and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, through the CDC Foundation. Governments of Brazil, Greece, India, Malaysia, Panama, Qatar, Thailand, and Turkey contributed funding to the GATS implementation.
