Mapping Tobacco Industry Activities in Southeast Asia

Hanoi, Vietnam


A map of tobacco industry strategies was developed using a structured conceptualization methodology known as concept mapping. The objective of the map was to develop a conceptual framework of tobacco industry tactics in four areas in Southeast Asia for the purpose of:

  • Generating consensus on key areas of importance and feasibility for regional and cross-country tobacco industry monitoring and surveillance
  • Developing measures to track and monitor the effects of the tobacco industry and to design counter strategies, and
  • Building capacity to improve tobacco control planning in participating countries.
The map indicates areas of importance and feasibility for monitoring tobacco industry activities and serves as a basis for initial discussion about action planning.
