"So many policy makers are captive to these industries in one way or another" (politician)
Tobacco, alcohol, and gambling are major causes of illness and premature death in Australia.
But the implementation of public health policies that are known to reduce harm are often delayed or stopped by industry groups who place private profits ahead of public health.
Industry Insight is a collaboration of independent researchers who investigate and provide expert insight into the mechanisms industry groups use to influence the policy process.
This website provides information on the methods used by tobacco, alcohol and gambling industries to oppose public health interventions. It is an educational toolkit for researchers, policy makers, the media, and the broader public to prepare to counter the strategies used by these big industries.
