Within the Program on Global Health and Technology Access at the Sanford School of Public Policy, DGHI faculty are examining the political economy of tobacco control and its impact on health in Southeast Asia -- including Vietnam. The project has the capacity to inform policymakers and health leaders throughout Southeast Asia, where illicitly-traded tobacco is high and so is the industry's influence on government tax policies. Other research priorities of DGHI faculty working in Vietnam include studying the sources of water contamination in groundwater. Duke faculty have also received DGHI international travel grants to explore global health research collaborations.
