FCA: Global tobacco control commitment needs fast follow up

Global leaders should be congratulated for committing to stronger tobacco control, the Framework Convention Alliance (FCA) said in a press release Monday.

“We are very encouraged that the Political Declaration agreed today at the UN High-level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) commits governments to accelerated implementation of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC),” said Laurent Huber, FCA executive director.

“This is recognition at the highest political level that the Convention needs more resources and stronger political will to be fully effective,” he added.
