The Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control

Annual Reports

2012 Annual Report

In 2012, FCA’s campaign work focused on finalising negotiations on the Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products (known as the ITP) and on the agenda items for November’s fifth session of the FCTC Conference of the Parties (COP5). This was a great success: the ITP was finalised in April and formally adopted at COP5. And nearly all other FCA priorities were endorsed by the COP.

2011 Annual Report

FCA set an ambitious agenda in 2011 to advance its mission, despite many challenges. These included the lack of FCTC negotiating meetings to bring the membership together and a significant decrease in programme funding. Yet nearly all of our goals were achieved, including a few key successes. Securing adequate financial resources remains a major challenge for the Alliance.

2010 Annual Report

In 2010, we marked the fifth anniversary of the FCTC, with 4 new ratifications. We also supported 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.

2009 Annual Report

In 2009 six new countries became Parties to the FCTC while 19 countries adopted 100% smokefree laws in all public places, with 100% smokefree regulations enacted at the subnational level in an additional 15 countries. We also supported  key FCTC negotiations and WHO meetings.

The work done by civil society made 2009 a productive and successful year – resulting  in millions of lives saved in the years to come. However, much work remains in 2010 as more countries need assistance in their efforts to become smokefree, and to develop and implement strong guidelines on enacting advertising bans and effective anti-tobacco health warnings.

In 2008 10 new countries became Parties to the FCTC and 35 countries adopted 100% smokefree laws in all public places. Governments also made positive decisions through the FCTC that will help reduce tobacco consumption around the world. We also provided leadership, technical expertise and logistical support during key FCTC negotiations and WHO meetings, as well as regional working group and expert group meetings.

FCA contributed 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.

2007 Annual Report

Ten new countries became Parties to the FCTC while 11 countries adopted 100% smokefree laws in all public places, and an additional four countries enacted 100% smokefree regulations at the subnational level. Over 350 non-governmental organisations are now members of the FCA. The FCA supported key WHO FCTC negotiating meetings and WHO meetings.

Due to the strong involvement of FCA members and partners, the second session of the Conference of the Parties—the governing body of the FCTC—was a major success this year and countries made many critical decisions that will have a positive impact on the implementation of the Treaty and global public health.
