Our Collaborative Partners

 

We are working in a team collaborating with media, civil society, and forum for consumer rights, medical doctors, NGOs, public health department, colleges, schools and other institutions working on tobacco control. We also support Ministry of Health and Population to gain wider support from different stakeholders such as ministry of home affairs, WHO, Nepal police, and media and other professional organizations. We have realized the need of proper coordination and support from each and every stakeholder and should not be influenced by TIs tactics and interferences. Moreover, support from international organizations and strong commitment from the government to identify, disclose, and prevent tobacco industry interference is essential for long-term solution to protect public health policies. Particularly, we work closely with
