People have died from tobacco-related diseases since the opening of the first FCTC working group on 28 October 1999.
In 2010, we marked the fifth anniversary of the FCTC, with 4 new ratifications. We also provided leadership, technical expertise and logistical support during 2010 for key FCTC negotiations and WHO meetings as well as regional working group and expert group meetings. FCA also contributed to strategic planning, policy brief writing, campaign development, and media campaigns. Prior to and during each meeting, we developed policy position papers, educational materials, and presentations that were made available to government delegates as well as NGO representatives.
