People have died from tobacco-related diseases since the opening of the first FCTC working group on 28 October 1999.
The Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) Alliance distributed a revised version of its briefing paper on tobacco and NCDs - with in-depth inserts on 5 topics (see below) - at the UN Informal Interactive Civil Society Hearing in New York on 16 June. The original paper was released in Moscow on Wednesday 27 April, at the WHO Global Forum.
The paper calls for accelerated implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) to produce a healthier, more able and productive global population, and to increase the benefits of investment already being made towards achieving the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The briefing paper, prepared by the Framework Convention Alliance (FCA) and the NCD Alliance, outlines why global tobacco control can and should be the lead engine in fighting NCDs.
