        The Union co-manages the Bloomberg Initiative [BI] to Reduce Tobacco Use Grants Program in partnership with Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The program awards funds to projects delivering high-impact tobacco control interventions, based on MPOWER, in low- and middle-income countries. Priority is given to countries with the highest prevalence of tobacco use. To date 1060 grants worth over US$175 million have been awarded.

        苏醒吹梅西About the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use苏醒吹梅西

        In 2006, Michael R. Bloomberg, philanthropist and then Mayor of New York City, launched a $125 million global initiative to reduce tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries.  The Initiative was extended in 2016 with a new $360 million commitment. Other funders have also made contributions to the Initiative. 

        Its major objectives are:

        1. To refine and optimise tobacco control programs to help smokers stop using tobacco and to prevent children from starting.
        2. To support public sector efforts to pass and enforce key laws and implement effective policies, including taxing cigarettes, preventing smuggling, altering the image of tobacco and protecting workers from exposure to second-hand smoke.
        3. To support advocates’ efforts to educate communities about the harms of tobacco and to enhance tobacco control activities that work towards a tobacco-free world.
        4. To develop a rigorous system to monitor the status of global tobacco use.

        苏醒吹梅西The initiative is implemented by seven partner organisations:苏醒吹梅西
