Our research

The Centre of Research Excellence on Achieving the Tobacco Endgame’s research aims to develop the evidence base for endgame strategies and identify the most promising strategies that could end the cigarette epidemic in Australia, and beyond.

The Centre’s four research programs will:

  1. Estimate the health and socioeconomic impacts of proposed endgame strategies through epidemiological research and modelling;
  2. Develop a legal framework for the implementation and defence of tobacco endgame strategies and review relevant case studies;
  3. Engage with stakeholders to understand positions, viewpoints, preferred policy options, and concerns; and
  4. Identify potential unintended adverse impacts and design strategies to mitigate these, including how to best support people to stop smoking.

Our centre is supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and The University of Queensland.
