CSEA senior research fellow, Dr. Grace Onubedo and Research fellow, Precious Akanonu, participated in the Economics of Tobacco Control learning workshop organized by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in partnership with the Cancer Research United Kingdom (CRUK).
The workshop was aimed at supporting collaborative research learning and practice in the economics of tobacco control for the prevention of tobacco-induced non-communicable diseases. It provided a platform for seven research teams from across the world to discuss strategies in an effort to tackle the global tobacco epidemic.
Specifically, it provided an opportunity for peer learning and community building across project teams and also strengthen project approaches for successful research communication and policy engagement. It also aimed to improve understanding of how gender analysis can be integrated into the economics of tobacco control research.
The workshop was held from 19-21 February 2019, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, London.
