Working together to promote the implementation of effective evidence-based tobacco control measures in Southeast Asia. The Southeast Asia Tobacco Control Alliance (SEATCA) works closely with key partners in ASEAN member countries to generate local evidence through research programs, to enhance local capacity through advocacy fellowships, and to be the catalyst in policy development through regional forums and in-country networking.
