The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

FCA calls on ILO to cut ties with Tobacco Industry

The Framework Convention Alliance (FCA) joins the calls on the International Labour Organization (ILO) to end its cooperation with the tobacco industry. The FCA is amongst the initial signers of an open letter to the members of the ILO Governing Body that are due to vote on the matter during their meeting in Geneva from 26 October – 9 November 2017. The ILO is one of the last UN agencies to follow the recommendation of the UN Interagency Task Force (UNIATF) to refuse any form of collaboration with the tobacco industry. On its date of publication (16 October), more than 180 organisation had signed the open letter to the ILO.
