FCA was created in 1999 and formally established in 2003. It is made up of nearly 500 organisations from over 100 countries.

FCA works on the development, ratification and implementation of the international treaty, the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC).

The WHO FCTC is the world’s first modern-day global public health treaty. It requires Parties to adopt a comprehensive range of measures designed to reduce the devastating health and economic impacts of tobacco. (More on the FCTC).

FCA is also a leading advocate for including the FCTC and global tobacco control in the international health and development framework, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will replace the Millennium Development Goals in 2015.

FCA’s work is overseen by an elected Board of Directors. The executive director leads the staff, which is based in every WHO region.
