A Corrigendum on
Comparing Tobacco and Alcohol Policies From a Health Systems Perspective: The Cases of the Philippines and Singapore

by Amul GGH and Etter J-F (2022). Int J Public Health. 67:1605050. doi: 10.3389/ijph.2022.1605050

In the first published version of the article, there was an error. The word “improve” was mistakenly inserted between “marketing” and “corporate social responsibility programs” in the Abstract Results section. The word “improve” should be replaced by “and.”

A correction has been made to the Abstract Results:

“Results: Despite health system differences, both the Philippines (73.5) and Singapore (86.5) scored high for tobacco control, but both countries received weak and moderate scores for alcohol control: the Philippines (34) and Singapore (52.5). Both countries have policy avenues to reinforce restrictions on marketing and corporate social responsibility programs, protect policies from the influence of the industry, and reinforce tobacco cessation and preventive measures against alcohol harms.”

The authors apologize for this error and state that it does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The first published incorrect version of the article has been updated.
