Bloomberg Task Force

The Task Force for Fiscal Policies for Health, co-chaired by Michael Bloomberg and Lawrence Summers, was convened in 2018 to examine existing evidence and make recommendations on how countries can use excise taxes to raise the prices of harmful products, reduce consumption, save lives and raise revenues. CGD experts are providing research and technical support to the Task Force and will contribute to defining its work program and outreach efforts.
