This user guide focuses on the critical role of program infrastructure in achieving and sustaining tobacco prevention and control goals. According to Best Practices 2014, “program infrastructure is the foundation that supports program capacity, implementation, and sustainability.” In 2011, CDC developed the Component Model of Infrastructure (CMI), an evidence-based model that defines infrastructure in practical and actionable terms. The CMI includes five core components of program infrastructure: Responsive Plans and Planning, Multilevel Leadership, Networked Partnerships, Managed Resources, and Engaged Data. As programs are increasingly challenged to secure funding and support, building a strong infrastructure becomes even more important to sustain programs and achieve goals. This guide gives program staff and partners information on how to begin developing strong program infrastructure.

Book
This publication paints an important picture of tobacco use and select tobacco control measures stipulated by the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. It discusses the Global Tobacco Surveillance System—the largest global public health surveillance system ever developed and maintained—which, over 15 years, has facilitated the development, implementation, and evaluation of tobacco control programs and policies in countries around the world. The GATS Atlas covers the 22 countries for which data had been publicly released by the end of 2013. It illustrates the dynamics of tobacco use and tobacco control policies in countries representing 3 billion of the 5 billion adult population worldwide.

The GATS Atlas includes examples from countries that have successfully integrated the Tobacco Questions for Surveys, a subset of key questions from the Global Adult Tobacco Survey. The main objective of this document is to make data visualization both simpler and friendlier. It combines data and visuals to guide and encourage decision makers and public health practitioners to accelerate tobacco control. It provides a portrait of each country’s progress, thus facilitating rigorous global and regional comparisons.
