The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

World No Tobacco Day 2013

This year's theme for World No Tobacco Day 2013 (WNTD 2013) , which takes place on 31 May 2013, is: ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.

A comprehensive ban of all tobacco advertising, promotion (TAPS) and sponsorship is required under Article 13 of the WHO Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) for all Parties to this treaty within five years of the entry into force of the Convention for that Party.

 Evidence shows that comprehensive TAPS bans lead to reductions in the numbers of people starting and continuing smoking. Statistics show that banning TAPS is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce tobacco demand and thus a tobacco control “best buy”.

Thank you, Fabien.

What item did you want us to translate? We have limited resources for this, so need to pick and choose what gets done. Our policy papers for the FCTC COP, for example, are all translated.

Did you see our web page for COP6? The link is above, in the left column.
