This publication co-authored by USC Institute for Global Health Director Heather Wipfli aims to identify an important new scheme that was launched, the Research Assistance Matching (RAM) Project. This is an innovative online programme to facilitate tobacco control research collaboration by connecting researchers and providing them with a platform to share and exchange information. The purpose of the project is to enhance the spread and quality of tobacco control research in developing countries by: helping researchers in such countries to increase their access to the expertise and experience of the international tobacco control research community, and assisting international colleagues to identify potential partners in developing countries.
