Database and Web site on tobacco industry activities for use by health advocates, reporters, policy-makers and the public health community

The Foundation's Innovators Combating Substance Abuse program was designed to highlight substance abuse as the nation's number one health problem by recognizing those who are striving to bring creative solutions to the field of substance abuse.The American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation (ANR) has established a tobacco industry-tracking database. This grant supports the upkeep and maintenance of the database. Additionally, this support will allow ANR to post a user-friendly database on the Web for free use by health advocates, reporters, policy makers, researchers, etc., throughout the nation and globally. The database will be password protected so that it will only be available to the public health community. Project staff will publicize the availability of the database at national and regional conferences via ANR's listserv and also provide telephone technical assistance to on-line users as appropriate.
