  • Description:
    The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) follows a Comprehensive Standard Protocol for implementation. During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, GATS implementation is ongoing in countries worldwide. The purpose of this document is to provide recommendations for successful implementation of GATS during the COVID-19 pandemic. GATS partners understand that timelines might need to be modified throughout the process because of local COVID-19 epidemiology and COVID-19 related movement restrictions.

    The spread of COVID-19 has brought a unique set of challenges to GATS data collection. GATS processes have been affected by the pandemic and, therefore, there is need to develop GATS safety procedures to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission among all participants working to implement GATS, including supervisors, interviewers, and survey participants.

    GATS COVID-19 safety procedures cover all stages of the GATS process, starting from engagement to data dissemination. The safety procedures will allow the implementation of GATS Comprehensive Standard Protocol, taking into consideration prevention measures to protect partners, trainees, field teams, and respondents. The safety procedures also build on preventive measures instituted for countries that have implemented GATS during the COVID-19 pandemic.
