Institute for Global Tobacco Control

Educational (Online) and Training Programs

The Institute for Global Tobacco Control has been actively involved in developing educational and training programs for tobacco control since its inception, including free online trainings in global tobacco control and in-person leadership and certificate programs on the Johns Hopkins University campus and around the world. Our courses and offerings support the growth of tobacco control advocates globally. 

In a resource-poor country like Nigeria, where we see a number of patients who die from tobacco-related diseases as well as the knowledge gap in tobacco control, it is imperative for physicians to search for relevant information to help our patients.
