A businessman being offered a package in a brown envelope

At least 8 million people die every year from using tobacco products. Millions more live every day with the health and economic consequences of tobacco use. The main barrier to reducing this preventable death and suffering is a deep-pocketed industry driven by profit.

STOP is dedicated to rigorously exposing the tobacco industry’s efforts to derail tobacco control and hook a new generation of users. It works around the world, with a special focus on low-and middle-income countries where the industry is aggressively targeting communities and where the biggest populations are at risk for tobacco-related disease burden.
