Foundation for a Smoke-Free World: Research Database


The tobacco industry has a long history of influencing science by covertly paying scientists and sponsoring institutes to publish research that benefits the industry. Historically, the results of this research were used to influence regulation and public health policy. Today, Tobacco Industry funded groups, such as the Philip Morris International-funded Foundation for a Smoke-Free World (FSFW), have been accused of similar practices1 by financing research that “serves to benefit its funder’s scientific and political agenda.”2

This database allows users to search and analyse the FSFW’s published and funded research, reports, and comments.
