The International Nicotine Product, Policy and Market (INPAM) Study
Project Title: Predicting and understanding the use of nicotine products in a rapidly evolving marketplace: The International Nicotine Product, Policy and Market (INPAM) Study
This NIH-funded international project explores what different countries have done to regulate tobacco products and how has this impacted tobacco use behaviors. The project involves a series of integrated, multi-disciplinary studies in countries with different tobacco use landscapes to assess public health policies, industry behavior, and the impact on these forces on the use of cigarettes, nicotine vaping products, and heated tobacco products. This program of research builds upon the longstanding International Tobacco Control Policy Evaluation (ITC) Project, which has used cross-country comparisons and a common mediation model to evaluate the behavioral impacts of national-level tobacco control policies.
