The e-learning courses will be displayed on the Global Tobacco Surveillance System (GTSS) Academy website, which aims to increase accessibility and availability of global tobacco surveillance data, tools, trainings and resources. The CDC Foundation seeks proposals from an experienced Contracting entity/Contractor to produce two e-learning courses in support of this mission.
