Welcome to GSP's Online Clearinghouse

The Global Smokefree Partnership (GSP) welcomes you on its online clearinghouse, a database of key resources on smoke-free issues. Users can search for resources using different criteria, including keywords, organization, author(s), and language. The resources in the database currently include articles, guides and reports produced by the GSP and its partners. The clearinghouse is a living resource, and the GSP will add new materials on a regular basis. Please check it often for updates and the latest information.
