The articles of the WHO FCTC

The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control includes a Preamble and 38 articles. 

Notably, the Preamble emphasizes the "special contribution of nongovernmental organizations and other members of civil society not affiliated with the tobacco industry ... and the vital importance of their participation in national and international tobacco control efforts".

Greetings from the Chair of the FCA Board

By Maxime Compaore

FCA Board Chair, Maxime Compaore I'm proud and excited to be Chair of the FCA Board at this crucial time in the life of our organisation, of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) and of global tobacco control in general.

With the development phase of the treaty coming to an end we now turn our attention to ensuring that its proven, effective and cost-effective measures are implemented fully so that we can begin to reverse the tide of the tobacco epidemic.
