JAMA. 2019;322(12):1133. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.14753

In fiscal years 2015 through 2018, the US government committed about $41.6 million to address global tobacco control, focusing mainly on research and surveillance, according to a recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), provided $39.5 million. The remaining funds came from the US Agency for International Development (USAID). In addition, the NIH, CDC, and FDA participated in knowledge-sharing and technical assistance.
