Global Tobacco Industry Interference Index
The Global Tobacco Industry Interference Index is published as an international tobacco lobby index by the Global Centre for Good Governance in Tobacco Control (GGTC) and is based on 20 indicators that are aligned with the guidelines under Article 5.3 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). It measures the efforts of governments to tackle tobacco industry influence. A point system is used for the evaluation. The higher the score, the worse the country scores and the greater the influence of the industry.
