Monitoring tobacco control among youth in countries of the South-East Asia Region: 2014
Other TitlesFindings from the Global Youth Tobacco Survey, 2003-2014
AbstractThe WHO brochure on the FCTC indicators related to youth tobacco control – findings from Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS) in countries in the WHO South-East Asia Region was first published in 2012. This is the second brochure in the series. While the first one provided the baseline, the present brochure provides the trend in selected Member States with three data points. In view of the imminent countdown for the 2015 NCD target year, this brochure is intended to be updated and published biennially from now on. The rich data contained in this document will be useful to programme managers, researchers, tobacco control advocates and any other relevant stakeholders for generating credible evidence to promote tobacco control in their respective institutions. In addition, these data can help the Member States plan further epidemiological studies as per their need.
