People have died from tobacco-related diseases since the opening of the first FCTC working group on 28 October 1999.
- December 20, 2012
Another busy year for tobacco control and the FCA. Among the usual tobacco control challenges, we also experienced many successes!
We've created an image slideshow to highlight these moments. Those bright spots included:
- INB5 negotiations on an Illicit Trade Protocol on Tobacco Products (ITP) produced a draft protocol to fight the global trade in illicit tobacco;
- World No Tobacco Day took on Big Tobacco;
- Australia adopted plain packaging, and
- COP5 adopted the ITP and agreed to create working groups on liability and on sustainable measures to strengthen implementation of the WHO FCTC.
