The Institute for Global Tobacco Control at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has long been engaged in building global tobacco control capacity. During the last decade, we have used distance-based approaches to extend our educational reach to over 180 countries and more than 7,000 tobacco control professionals. As the academic partner within the Bloomberg Initiative, tone of our priorities is to develop and implement capacity building initiatives aimed at professionals in low- and middle-income countries.
In addition to the online training offered through this website, the Bloomberg Initiative also provides support for other capacity building programs, including a leadership program, an academic certificate program, and regional leadership trainings in tobacco control.
More information about these programs and other educational opportunities offered by JHSPH can be found on the Institute for Global Tobacco Control's website.
