Tobacco use is a major cause of many preventable diseases and premature deaths. Globally, more than five million people die each year of tobacco-related illness, a figure expected to increase to more than 8 million by 2030. Bangladesh is also overburdened with tobacco-related illness and, in 2004 an estimated 57,000 people died of tobacco-related diseases. In Bangladesh, tobacco control is considered a lower priority issue compared to many other health-related programs. Thus tobacco control-related research has historically not been a popular topic within the academic community; relevant research journals are limited; and, there is no platform where potential tobacco control researchers can get support and guidance.

The overall objective of BTCRN is to promote tobacco control research in Bangladesh and to create a nurturing culture for such research. The specific objectives of the network are to:

  • Review Bangladesh-specific tobacco control research activities and identify gaps;
  • Document and disseminate tobacco control research findings that can be used to enhance support for tobacco policy development and implementation; and
  • Serve as a resource for partners, implementers, activists and the Government with respect to tobacco control research.
