People have died from tobacco-related diseases since the opening of the first FCTC working group on 28 October 1999.
Every year (on May 31) the World Health Organization (WHO) runs World No Tobacco Day to highlight the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocate for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption.
Every year, the FCA and its members partner with the WHO to help champion the day.
