Tell WHO: Strengthen tobacco control in NCD Global Action Plan: 2013-2020


NCDalliance report coverThe World Health Organization (WHO) will conclude consultations on the draft NCD Action Plan this week (29 March).

The Plan will guide global and national response to the epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – one of whose main risk factors is tobacco use – over the next eight years.

It is important that the WHO document contains strong references to the FCTC, and the latest draft is a marked improvement on the original in that regard. Still, we have some work to do.

 Important recommendations are contained in FCA's submission to the WHO, which has been just finalised and will be disseminated to governments. It is equally important that others send these recommendations to the WHO to demonstrate the strength of the tobacco control movement.

Please help promote FCA's recommendations by filling out this template, as required (instructions in yellow) and sending it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Friday 29 March.
