About Us

The Public Health and Tobacco Policy Center (Center) is a resource for communities striving to improve public health through implementing evidence-based policies. The Center provides legal and technical support for policies that reduce the availability of and market for tobacco products; reduce unwanted exposure to secondhand smoke; minimize exposure to tobacco advertising and promotion; increase cancer screening rates; and promote healthy behaviors.

We accept funding to develop and support policy initiatives that improve public health, including but not limited to reducing tobacco-related morbidity and mortality and other chronic diseases. As part of our legal technical assistance, we provide legal analysis, policy tracking, and drafting assistance.
The Center is housed in the Public Health Advocacy Institute (PHAI) at the Northeastern University School of Law. PHAI dedicates its legal and advocacy expertise to improve the understanding, commitment, and effectiveness of policymakers and lawyers to protect public health.
The Center works with governments and organizations seeking public health policy support. Contact us for more information.
