A nationally representative, self-administered, school-based survey of students in grades associated with 13 to 15 years of age. GYTS uses a globally standardized methodology and a core questionnaire that is designed to produce cross-sectional estimates for each country with a global standard for systematically monitoring youth tobacco use (smoking and smokeless) and tracking key tobacco control indicators.

GYTS is an important tool to assist countries in supporting WHO MPOWER, a package of six evidence-based demand reduction measures contained in the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The results from the GYTS assist countries in enhancing their capacity to design, implement, and evaluate tobacco control interventions.

The GYTS, launched in 1999, is one of the largest public health surveillance systems. It has been active in more than 188 countries/sites and is implemented every 5 years. In the Region of the Americas, the GYTS has been carried out at least with a national representativeness in 32 of the 35 PAHO's member states.
