United Health Futures Taxes on Tobacco, Alcohol, and Sugar-Sweetened Beverages in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

January 15, 2019 - May 31, 2019


This work builds on an economic modeling project previously completed for the Global Fund.  WDI is designing and building a Python-based tool for estimating changes in excise tax revenue and product consumption given a change in excise tax rates for tobacco, alcohol, and sugar-sweetened beverages. It is expected that the tool will be used eventually by a multilateral task force.
