People have died from tobacco-related diseases since the opening of the first FCTC working group on 28 October 1999.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a health warnings website to help countries and Parties to the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) share pictorial health warnings and messages.
The WHO FCTC requires Parties to implement large, rotating health warnings on all tobacco products’ packaging and labelling. Such warnings are seen as a cost-effective way to increase public awareness about the dangers of tobacco use.
This website, was developed following a decision by the Conference of the Parties to the WHO FCTC at its third session, and will be updated regularly as countries and Parties provide more images.
