FCA backs Philippines against tobacco industry

27 Sep 2011

FCA notes that the current role of the tobacco industry on the Inter-Agency Committee on Tobacco violates article 5.3 of the FCTC, concerning interference from the tobacco industry in public health policy.

“Taking into consideration the historical behaviour of the tobacco industry and its potential to circumvent present initiatives, we strongly recommend further protection of the executive, legislative, and judiciary branches of your government,” the letter says.
