Death clock reaches 40 million

Today, November 4, just before 11am Geneva time, the death clock will reach a staggering 40 million tobacco-related deaths since the start of the World Health Organisation’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) negotiations in 1999.

This is a stark reminder that critical steps must be taken at the upcoming third Conference of the Parties (COP) to effectively implement the Convention. Most urgently, Parties must adopt strong and effective guidelines for implementation of Articles 5.3, 11 and 13.
