Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS), Bhutan 2019
The Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS) was developed by the Tobacco-Free Initiative (TFI), World Health Organization (WHO) and the Office on Smoking and Health of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with other countries representing the six WHO regions. Its aim was to generate comprehensive information on the prevention and control of tobacco use among young people. It enables countries to systematically monitor tobacco use among the youth and track the key indicators of tobacco control, using globally standardized tools. The GYTS is a nationally representative school-based survey of students of 13–15 years of age, and uses consistent and standard protocols across countries. It is intended to generate comparable data within and across countries.
