Judith Watt

International Tobacco Control Consultant

In her three decades in tobacco control, Judith Watt has been an advocate, strategist and mentor at UK, Australian and global levels. Her career has included communications planning, policy development and advocacy, and pioneering work in supporting advocates in low- and middle-income countries.

Judith’s initial experience came in running national campaigns in the UK and Australia in the 1980s and 1990s, where she lay the groundwork for initiatives that are still widely seen as models internationally, including the “Every cigarette is doing you damage” TV campaign that has been adapted for use in over 40 countries.

She played a central role in establishing grants programmes, including the $10m Open Society Foundation programme in Central and Eastern Europe; the first phase of the $40m Bloomberg global programme for The Union; and the £5m international programme of Cancer Research UK.

She is a member of the Board of the Framework Convention Alliance and has served as Secretary and now Treasurer.
