People have died from tobacco-related diseases since the opening of the first FCTC working group on 28 October 1999.
- January 7, 2013
FCA Director Laurent Huber is quoted in a recent Lancet Oncology online article:
“France has failed to see major decreases in tobacco use due to a lack of tobacco tax increases”, says Laurent Huber (Framework Convention Alliance). “The UK and Ireland are leading the way when it comes to FCTC implementation, while Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Germany are clearly lagging behind”, adds Huber.
The article, "EU variation in implementation of tobacco control treaty", also discusses whether it is possible to implement tobacco control uniformly among EU countries.
