FCA in the news: Diversity in FCTC implementation in the EU

FCA Director Laurent Huber WNTD 2011 WEBFCA Director Laurent Huber.
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.
